The Queen’s Baton Relay is a Games tradition that celebrates the Commonwealth’s diversity, inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture to come.
Monday 26th Feb
The part we are interested in is when it travels from Woodbridge Riverside Park to Guildford Grammer School. On this leg the baton will be carried by Ramon Andersson.
All paddlers will need to be at Woodbridge Riverside Park at 4:00 pm on Monday 26 Feb 2018. Baton will leave at 4:25.
Suggest launching at Lilac Hill, Barkers Bridge or Fish Market Reserve at 3:30 to paddle to upstream to the start point.
There will be a continuation of the celebration at Stirling Square, Guildford after the baton arrives.
Anyone who would like a boat loaded on the Ascot Kayak Club trailer, it will then be taken from Ascot Kayak Club to Barkers Bridge. Loading at 12 noon.
It would be great to have as many paddlers as possible from all clubs on the water as part of the flotilla escorting Ramon and the baton.
