Re: Rainchasers contact for calibrations

Poke The email for rainchasers still doesn't work. Fancy adding the Stratford Upon Avon Playspot at Lucy's Mill Weir? Are you interested in adding levels for Lucy's Mill weir play spot to Rainchasers? Relies on this gauge https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/station/2046 50 cm is low 60-...

Re: Surf kayaking advice

Is the Liquid Logic 90 a Stomper, if so I'd go for the rpm. The Stomper will be too much of a river runner and won't be much fun in the surf.

Re: Glen Etive question

Easter 2019 will be fine. Easter 2020 may be a problem. The Etive itself will be unaffected so far. The tributaries will be. Hopefully the planners will see sense!

Lost Paddles - Upper Wye

A mate lost his paddles yesterday on the Upper Wye, Llangurig to Rhayader section. There is a nasty strainer that claimed them. They have red blades and are marked with his name and telephone number.

Re: River Wye - Llangurig to Rhayader

Pretty horrible blockage on this section yesterday. There is a large tree on a left hand bend which has accumulated a load of debris, including a length of wire mesh and barbed wire fence, complete with fence posts. The fence is not very visible. The dead sheep it has caught is! This is a real hazar...

Re: Warwickshire

ArkguideChase, You have a few options with local paddlers. Paddletastic meet each Thursday between 8 and 10 pm at the excel, just outside the university for some practice and a rough and ready version of kayak polo. Leamington Spa Canoe Club, Mercia Canoe club and Hinckley are all close by too. Enjoy!

Fin replacement

My kayak has a broken fin and the surf shops look at me weirdly when I show it to them. When do people get their replacements from please?


Does it need to be identical to the other two?

Re: Stay safe and keep clear of the weir at Riding Mill

Before we all get too clever here let's remember three men died on this weir in 2014. They didn't have years of paddling experience to guide them. Let's welcome an initiative that publicises the risk in a way that's meaningful to many people. That's what the coroner suggested, after all. I don't di...

Re: Scotland levels?

The gauges are all online.

Go to the Where's the water website and you can look at virtually live levels (a few hours old). A fair amount of water about at present!

Canoe England promoting a page that suggests the river Dove is not usually open to paddlers!! Probably a good event but a poor message.
