Thinking of checking this out over the next few days. As I understand it 6 pm is high tide locally so we need to be there at 3? Anything we need to know?

Vauxhall Insignia Estate - Roof rails

Anyone got a Vauxhall Insignia Estate? The roof rails are not the traditional style but are shapped sections on the roof. Do they take roof bars well? Do they seem up to the loads of 4 kayaks? They are rated to 100kg but I wonder if roof bars clamp on as well as traditional fittings?

Re: What feather for scouts paddles

So we have no votes for 60 degree at all, a few for forty five and at least two for zero! I must admit going for zero is tempting, but I think I will probably not be doing the scouts a favour there as the next time they go kayaking the chances are they will be presented with a feathered paddle. It ...

Re: What feather for scouts paddles

Zero feather is the way to go. Scouts unless they are very luck get out only a few times per year. They will getv the hang of zero feather very quickly - feathered paddles are a bit odd for a begineer and take some getting used to. The aim is usually for the kids to have fun and the more simple the ...

Anyone who runs a club knows just how hard it is. Multiply that up by the membership of CE/BCU and imagine the headaches.

Today I happened to notice that my EHIC has expired. Luckily it expired just after the end of my last European tour, so I've not been without, but could easily have been. When I mentioned it to a few friends they also hadn't realised, so before the Spring season starts up perhaps you should check y...
