Looe Fun Race

Post date: 10-Aug-2017 17:19:46

Thank you to everyone who attended the Looe Fun Race on Tuesday Night.

Despite the forecasts the sun came out and Looe river was at its best for the annual Fun Canoe Race sponsored by the Purely Cornish Farmshop & Deli.

With the biggest ever entry over 30 competitors competed in a range of craft from ultra fast racing kayaks, double canoes, Stand up Paddle boards and even two Surf Life Saving rescue boards!

The junior class was particularly well attended and all did extremely well to complete a longer course than previous years that took them down under Looe bridge then all the way up to Watergate a distance of over 4Km.

Many thanks to the Safety boats and local Looe businesses (Harveys Fish & Chips, Old Guys rule, Co-op, Black Dog Marine, Jack Bray & Sons).
