The long-anticipated Dart Trip was finally here and so was Storm Erik, filling the rivers and all of us with the gleeful prospect of some excellent paddling. The early birds were gathered at Newbridge by high noon on Friday and a well covered slab confirmed that a big and bouncy blast on the Loop was in order.

Tree hugging, boulder beaching and Bala Mill strikes back...

Lower Tryweryn, Sunday 23rd July 2017

Paddlers: Chucky, Ali, Clara, Brian, Sandie

The weekend's rain had done little to swell the rivers and it was a small band of three that set off from the Club on Sunday to take advantage of a sunny day in Wales. With the group being small and Clara a relative newbie to white water, the plan was to head to the Dee.

Intro to white water day at symonds yat (and my intro to coachingšŸ˜Š)

Today’s paddle was another intro to white water day based at symonds yat, the idea being to give some of the newer members of the club a chance to experience some moving water and a great opportunity for all members to get out and enjoy the water.

Waves, wobbles and silly tan lines.

A 'little' paddle related blog from Laura - just in case you've forgotten what it was like to be a newbie (I had...)  If you want to follow more of Laura's ramblings on life, paddling and horses please see her blog at:

In the last week or so the preparation has started for the summer trip to the Alps. After I decided to go and got my deposit paid, I've got some kit sorted and I'm set up with the basics to get out and practice.
