More than 325 competitors battled it out on the waters through West Berkshire as the annual Devizes to Westminister canoe race (DW) made a welcome return.

After a two-year absence, the 72nd running of the race took place over the Easter weekend, with 188 boats and 332 competitors taking on the 108-mile, 77 portage event in glorious April weather.

The DW – the world’s longest non-stop canoe race and seen by many as one of the toughest endurance events on the planet – is normally 125 miles long, but this year’s race ended at the Thames Young Mariners club, in Teddington.
