Re: Alps question - club trip

I'm heading out at the start of the school holidays because I'm a teacher. Might well be looking for people to boat with and know a few rivers after a visit last year. I'm guessing its pretty easy to find people to boat with because of the amount of people out there normally?

Re: Trent lock is running!

If you use the Shardlow gauge it is worth considering the River Soar and River Erewash both join the Trent after the gauge but before the weir at Trent Lock. The levels from these might have an effect on the wave. I always use the Colwick gauge because its the only one I know the calibrations for. N...

Re: Austria River Levels...

Any suggestions for campsites? a group of us are heading out late June/ Early July and wouldn't mind meeting up with other groups of boaters. So far people have suggested Aktiv Camping at Prutz so we are looking at going there.

Hi, I am selling my Werner Sidekick Paddles. They are well used as you can see from the pictures. They were 191cm 45 degree feather. However they have worn down to about 188/189cm now and the blade is smaller. Would be ok for smaller paddlers looking for some cheap blades or for splits. http://i1123...

I am selling my Robson Charger. It is not the most modern design but still nice to paddle with plenty of speed and turns well when on edge. The outfitting is also very effective, perhaps the best of any boat I have paddled. The boat is in great condition, there are no deep scratches or welds. I am a...

We also paddled Clough Brook that flows into the Dane river right.

There was nice 6 foot drop we got on above. However the 300 mete...

Re: RIVER DANE (Gradbach to Rushton Spencer)

A group of us paddled the Dane yesterday. There was 2 strands of barbed wire across the river about half way down. Sorry cant be more specific because I can't quite remember how far down it was exactly. Could sneak through at the time but could be difficult in other levels.

Oh and if anyone sees a VE paddle on the Dane or Clough brooke could you let me know please, they fell victim of one of the many chicken wire and barbed wire fence someone put up across the river. Luckily I got through ok.

Re: Peak rivers today

A group of us paddled the Dane and one of its tribs, Clough Brooke, today. It was the first time any of us have paddled in the Peaks. We had a fun day and was suprised how many rivers seemed to be running in the area.
