#Canoeing: Fans of the Liffey Descent can now follow it from anywhere in the world. The 30-kilometre canoeing race tomorrow (September 23rd) features live tracking all the way from the start at Straffan (12 o’clock) to Islandbridge, where boats will arrive from about 1.45. Twelve of the top crews have been fitted with GPS units and their progress through the twists and turns of the course will be mapped.

 The service is being provided by Primal Tracking from Portadown. You can find a link on the Liffey Descent Facebook page.

 Competitors in the race take on 10 weirs, and paddlers must scramble out and carry their boat down the bank at Leixlip. Spectators can view the race from the bridges and the banks.
