Having had to abort my last two attempts to go paddling in Scotland I finally made it north of the border for this years annual Kingfisher Canoe Club trip last week. Epic water levels were encountered at the beginning of the week and we took advantage of these to run a few rivers I hadn’t paddled […]Read more "Third Time lucky"
Funny how life gets so busy you forget things. Anyway I while ago (all the way back in May!) a bunch of us from Kingfisher Canoe Club went out to Val Sesia for a week of loafing and paddling.

Despite the biblical amount of rain the UK has received recently we managed to find ourselves in South Wales looking at rather low rivers on the weekend after New Year.

We’re officially in a drought apparently. Despite this I managed to find myself on a spate run of the Edw (a tributary of the River Wye) last weekend and paddled Hurley Weir on three gates yesterday. Go figure. On both occasions I managed to not take a single photo. In the mean time however I here […]Read more "Strange Times"
