Re: Waterside D - Sunny Sunday

Cheers Nick, to be fair doing these races in K2 is hard enough so I cant see the dark side ever appealing to me.

Re: Waterside C - rather pleasant

Talking of portages with rollers...the ones at Sunbury have just been revamped. A brand new set of rollers running the whole length of the portage. If you fancy your chances you could probably stay in your boat if you have an overstern rudder! What most people need to watch out for though is that th...

Re: Waterside C - rather pleasant

Hi Lennart, If you like me are only used to paddling in bare feet, then anything is a compromise. I will be using the Vibram 5 Fingers http://shop.primallifestyle.com/bikila-red-size-43-uk9-1724-p.asp which we have used very successfully on the races so far.

Re: Waterside B 2011 – a bumpy ride

Glad to say that B passed off without a hitch for us today. No complaints and no time penalties. Things are looking up. Hoping everyone else had a good day also!

Re: Waterside A - a grand day out

Neither of us were around after the event for the organisers to speak to and when we did request that our side was heard we were very welc...

Re: Waterside A - a grand day out

Thanks for your support guys, the whole incident has been exaggerated somewhat but basically I slipped and fell and in the process dropped our boat on some poor girls head.
