Probably the best raft team in Madley

Welcome to MadSat Raft Team

We're a friendly group of like minded people of all abilities, who regularly race rafts on rivers, canals and even at sea across the UK with the aim of - 

  • Winning as often as we can and while doing so, making sure that we have a smile on our faces
  • Raising as much as we can for charity - so far we have managed to raise over £40,000 to help a number of deserving local and national causes
  • Having as much fun as we can while we're at it

We've only gone and done it again!

After a long, hard season, we have retained the Ladies, MIxed and Overall championship in the National Raft Race League.

Multiple crews entered into every points-scoring race, plus a 10 entered into the Great River Race, Bell Boat Racing, Dragon Boat Racing, Assistance at the Hereford River Carnival and (hopefully) a TV appearance coming up on an upcoming Claire Balding TV Programme has made this the busiest year in MadSat's history.

The season may be over, but the fun (training) still continues!

We meet on the south side bank of the River Wye just outside the village of Eaton Bishop (SatNav co-ordinates 52.05734° N, 2.80455° W) and there's ample parking on site. It's fun, so come with a sense of humour and sometimes we even find time for a swift drink afterwards!

So why not come along  and find out who we. Do please give Nick a call on 07935 204176 or e-mail : for training dates and times

We're already thinking of next season, so here's a couple of dates for your diary 7th July 2024 - MadSat Mad Dash 1 1st September 2024 - MadSat MadDash 2
