Other useful links 

There are a lot of great websites and Facebook pages out there which cover raft racing and the teams. Here are a few. Click on the title to take you to the pages.


CHAR 70-Miler 

A fantastic website with bags of information. A must-see for anyone thinking of doing the 70 mile race. Hayley Toms of True Grit has done a great job putting it all together.

Minehead Harbourfest 

This site covers everything you'll need to know about the fantastic weekend long Harbourfest, including the raft race from Minehead beach, out to sea and back into the harbour.

Lions Wasperton-Stratford Raft Race 


Most teams have Facebook pages. Here you go...


Very experienced and very fast.

Drive On

A Hereford based team who have a good mix of male and female rafters.

Paddlesport Racers

A team of committed paddlers who race on various river and sea going vessels.

Patricks Gulpers

Undoubtedly one of the best teams on the water. An average age of 60-something shows that experience counts. 


A team who raced back in the mid eighties, now re-launched and rejuvenated by the sons of the original team

True Grit

A great bunch with the best supporters on the river bank who cheer as loudly for other teams as they do their own. They have recently launched a ladies team called Aquaholics.

Vale Triffids

A team who are hopefully returning to the water, they're always out supporting other teams even when not racing themselves. Organisers of the Evesham race.

Victory Pirates

A great bunch led by the jolly Keith Kinsey.


Very social and great battlers on the water. Always willing to help other teams, they organise 2 races each year, Offenham and Ross-Lydbrook.

Wonder Y

At this moment in time, this is the team to beat. Seem to have an endless supply of crewmembers, they boast not just a fantastic male team but also the most experienced ladies crew on the water.
