Re: Help Kingfisher Canoe Club

Indeed, we've made it through to the next stages. Considering there were something like 3700 applications this feels like quite an achievement.

Thank you so much everyone who helped by voting for us.

Re: Middle Claree Siphon French Alps - New Rock Fall?

The cliff has most definitely collapsed making it a bit nasty, especially with the tree in it. Our group (I passed on it) got on beneath the bridge and said it was clear below, though at the level they ran it quite pushy (it was very high) and they spent a lot of time inspecting checking their were ...

Re: Thames locks above Oxford

Sometimes the temporary lock keepers you get in the summer can be a bit funny, but, in general yes. It takes ages to cycle the water through them so if your in a hurry its quicker to portage.

Re: EWW 2.0

I always thought that satnav units excepted OS grid references. Certainly Co-pilot, the satnav software I use on my phone, accepts OS grid references and I was pretty sure that Garmin did as well. A quick Google suggests they may have deprecated this feature in newer models.
