Hundreds of canoeists set off for the annual S2C event along the River Stour from Sudbury to the tidal barriers at Cattawade this morning.
The annual trip is nearly 25 miles long and takes the canoeists two days to complete – most spend the night at a campsite set up in Wissington on their way along the river.
This year about 260 canoeists have taken part in the trip, which has been organised by the River Stour Trust every year since 1970.
Organiser Jane Rogers said between 450 and 500 people were taking part either paddling the canoes or providing support to those on the water.
She said: “This is a fun event with people from a wide area taking part – we have some people from Warwickshire.”
The event gives canoeists the chance to see part of the countryside that is normally inaccessible – but there are points on the course that they have to get out carry their boats around obstacles.
