Devon WW Trip November 2019

Friday the 8th of November saw 7 intrepid paddlers head west along the south coast in search of white water. After installing themselves in the well appointed but remote Heatree centre we all retired to our beds eagerly awaiting the following day. By dawn our ranks had been swollen further to make 8. We split […]

South Wales Whitewater October 2019: Towy and Ogmore

The rivers were beautiful and challenging, the coaching, support and camaraderie superb. More experienced folks reckoned it the ‘best ever South Wales trip’. Fourteen made their way through thunderous rain to Wales. Ten enjoyed a welcome cheesecake (thanks Adrian and Jen!) at Troedyrhiw, with four others joining a Friday (Robbo led 😚 bedtime literally!) video […]

North Wales trip report August 2019

After a night of wild weather at the campsite we gathered at the café at the Whitewater Centre for the morning briefing. One group went off to paddle the upper T whilst Linda coordinated the car-shuttle arrangements which seemed quite challenging enough for that time of the morning. The whole group got on the water […]

Chi Harbour Trip June 2019

Arrived and unpacked, […]

Ouse Cruise Trip Report – May 2019

May bank holiday saw a small band of paddlers gather, slightly earlier than requested, in a car park by Barcombe Mill. After some dressing and a clear briefing from Cathe, we began to carry our boats to the put-in (I’m learning some new terms ! ). Help was offered to all and, after a careful […]

River Wey – Triggs Loop April 2019

A lovely, gentle round trip on the River Wey and the Wey Navigation, starting and finishing at the Old Tannery at Send. It was about 10 km (6.5 miles) in total with a couple of easy portages on the outward leg and a pub break on the return jouorney. And we had as many canoes […]

North Wales White Water – March 2019

Friday 29th March: After a lack of rain scuppered original plans to go to Devon, 10 of us made the journey to North Wales in search of water. The early risers ( Max and Rob) made it to Bala by lunchtime where they took advantage of the sunny weather and (apparently!) circumnavigated the entire 8.5miles […]
