Gallery: Teams splash off for the sea along the Stour
OARSMEN of all abilities enjoyed the annual Sudbury to the Sea adventure.
Dozens of eager teams paddled off on smooth water from the Granary, near the Quay, at Sudbury on Saturday as part of the two-day trip down the course of the River Stour.
Vessels of all shapes and sizes took in the sights and sounds of the river as they made their way along the 24-and-a-half-mile course.
Stopping off at the new Henny Swan pub for a well-earned breakfast, the teams stopped for a picnic lunch at Bures before camping overnight at Wissington.
Having enjoyed fine weather, the teams finished their journey at Cattawade Barrier yesterday.

Organised by the River Stour Trust, the first paddle took place 30 years ago as part of a project to notice any problems on the scenic stretch of river.
The event has since become hugely popular, attracting teams from across the country to take part in the wet and wild weekend.
