Re: The Dream Result premiere in London.

I’d second the Whitewater option as a good "London" location . When ever they’ve done lectures and video premiers before there always well attended and fun. Easy too get too from the centre of town to.

Re: For a Burn - what air bag in the front?

Yak make a Kayak bow bag. Think they cost about £20.00, should fit a Burn just fine.
Whitewater in Shepperton have them in stock.

Re: RIVER TRENT (Holme Pierrepont Artificial Whitewater Course)

I have added a section to my blog which will have up to date info on the water level and condition at HPP Nottingham.
I understand my idea of bad water condition may be slightly different from the result of an iron stomach but it will give you a general idea.
