Rob Roy Rally
Time & Location
About The Event
The Thames Canoe Rally has been created to enable anyone who canoes or kayaks to be able to enjoy the real challenge of paddling the whole length of the non-tidal Thames - a distance of 123 miles with 44 locks. You have the summer to do it.
The Start is at St John’s Lock at Lechalde and the finish at Teddington Lock.
Rob Roy MacGregor was the first paddler who recorded his adventures on paper and went out on the water with the primary goal of pure enjoyment. Later in his life he also helped found the first ever paddling association, the Royal Canoe Club of England. Many people agree that if John MacGregor hadn’t travelled a thousand miles on European rivers in 1865 aboard his ‘Rob Roy’ boat, our sport would not be the same today.
