Firstly a big thanks to Mat for organising the event. Also to all the experienced paddlers who supported the likes of me down the river. Giving us invaluable coaching and for their amazing rescues of paddlers, boats and paddles.
Those doing the trip were: Adam, Graham, Fitz, Mat S, Ben, Tim, Paul C, Emma B, Roy, Sue C, Lu, Max, Kev, Rita, Andy C, Steve G, and Ross.

For those of you who haven’t been it is worth while printing off the forms that are required and filling them in before you get there. There are lots of other courses going on so completing your forms could save you a lot of time. Now they issue you with a yearly pass so you don’t have to do paper work every time you go. The changing and shower facilities are great and have lockers. The volumes of water released changes throughout the day; the details are on the website.
Another year, and another Wychavon Kayak and Canoe Club (WKCC) Winter Social – but this year with the added attraction of an ergo challenge. As part of my fundraising for a Girlguiding International trip, I had been kindly lent a kayak ergo, which provided a lot of extra fun and competitiveness to our usual social.
