Team Name:
UK Riggers
Competing in:
Mixed Open Division

We’re a group of like minded people who have come together to do the Liberty Challenge. Two of our team are mainly rafters (their team is Patrick’s Gulpers) and they race super rafts, a similar type of paddling to outrigger canoe but the boats aren’t quite as streamlined!! The rest of us are a mix from the Royal Outrigger Club and OCUK (Outrigger Club UK). Amongst the six of us we have done a variety of paddling events from raft races, dragon boat world and european championships, OC1/OC2 races, va’a world sprints (2012) and the 22 mile Great River Race which is run in London every year.

UK Riggers Mixed Crew:
