Excalibur in Chile

<t>Yep definitely an excellent movie, from what I remember it was mostly filmed in Ireland, so waterfall probably there, doesn´t look particularly paddleable though. Just to keep the connections going, Excalibur was on telly this morning (if you happened to be in South America - luckily most films a...

Futaleufu (so that´s how it´s spelt !)

<r>Hi, as Mark knows, I am in Chile at the moment. Is your friend a kayaker or just wanting to raft ? <br/> <br/> Futaleufu is now back at normal levels, having been half metre above normal all season (okay Mark, the Throne wasn´t covered when I saw it back in 1998, but my photos show water flowing ...

Zambezi

<t>When I was there, Nov 2001, we stayed at Fawlty Towers, but had to get a taxi each morning to Grubby´s Grotto as that was the only rafting company going regularly, who were prepared to take us. Unfortunately all the rafting companies have had bad experiences with kayakers claiming to be up to run...

Understanding German

<r>Luckily your German doesn´t need to be any good, as the pages have a connection to Altavista Babelfish Translator - unfortunately it doesn´t cope very well with kayaking terms e.g. egress, stopper etc, so initially it reads like gobbledegook, but it doesn´t take too much effort to work it out.<br...

Big weirs

<t>Yep there are two Lintons, the one on the Wharfe is a natural fall, and I wasn´t suggesting that the Mellte weir is the biggest, just the biggest I´ve paddled recently. Anyway I´m not that keen on vertical drops, there´s just too much luck and not enough skill involved. <br/> <br/> As somebody me...

Chile

<t>I contacted the editors who said guidebook would be out next year, however, as you say I won´t be holding my breath, but it is imminent...<br/> <br/> On my three trips down that section I have never seen the Throne without water flowing over the top (once in 1998, twice this year) on the one time...

Weirs

<t>I have been down the Guisane weir, but I wouldn´t recommend it, I usually walk round. Some of the weirs on a beck which drains the river Derwent at Scarborough looked pretty big, but I have only seen them on a video, Linton Locks on the Yorkshire Ouse also feels pretty big, but that´s due to the ...

Walkham

<t>Paddled it a few years ago with enough flow at Storry's get in to float, was mostly very straight forward grade 2-3 with just the one more tricky rapid Gr 3 (as described above).<br/> The road back up from the Tavy is more impressive than the river, especially as I was biking it.<br/> I know some...

Well it finally seems to be raining...

<t>near Bristol at any rate. Shouldn't imagine it will be enough to bring the rivers up for this weekend but then I'm working anyway. <br/> <br/> If it keeps raining has anyone got any plans for next weekend in the SW or S.Wales ? - the Teifi tour is on if we're desperate (or is that likely to be ca...

Chile - winter 2002/2003

<r>I am going to be based in the Chilean Lake District from Nov to March this year, does anyone have any useful info on the lesser known rivers, as I have already paddled the Fuy and the Futaleufu (definitely going back to both).<br/> <br/> Also if you are heading out there feel free to email me <EM...
