Lots of great content on the channel. Please subscribe and show us that you love us. It's free and you can choose to receive a notification when we post, selected notifications or no notifications. Also, if you subscribe you see the featured video rather than me telling you about the channel. those You Tube people are really very clever :-)

The full Monty is here. Divided into playlists. Enjoy and we love to hear you opinions, views and feedback.

PLEASE SHARE WITH ANY PADDLERS who might like this. We are keen to find something people like and want to contribute to.

Newbury CC Paddler Seeking DW Partner

No, not for me!

We have a Div 7 VM looking for a Senior Doubles DW partner after his current one has withdrawn following injury. Strong paddler who is looking to finish and could get close to 24 hours. Has a good K2 ready to go. He's willing to put in the miles so just needs a person willing to give it a go.

Please PM me as he doesn't do FB.

For members local to Pangbourne, this dog has gone missing from a house on the main road in Purley Rise.

It's likely to have gone towards Sulham woods, but may have headed to the riverside are near Home Farm.
What a great weekend. Many thanks for all the hours you put into planning and an excellent event. Thanks also to all the friendly volunteers. We really enjoyed it.
So Pangbourne, thanks for a great year as members of PCC. You've managed to teach 4 out of 6 of the family to paddle and we've all really appreciated being a part of the club! And what a great way to spend our last weekend in Berkshire, helping out and racing at Nationals and being part of the team!

Hope to catch up with as many of you as possible at future events and maybe even find our way back for a paddle on that great stretch of the Thames some day!
Hi there wondered if we can pay for some merchandise then collect on the day as we dont want to miss out...please

[04/04/18]   All Pangbourne crews finished the shortened Devizes to Westminster Race, which was stopped at Reading on Saturday due to increasing water flow . What turned out to be a difficult weekend for the organisers it was good to see the Pangbourne crews coping with rising levels on the canal and challenging conditions, both on water and over ground.

It is still unclear as to how or if there will be any official results, safe to say that all crews wore trackers and so all have a recorded time for their effort.

Well done Pangbourne!
