The levels at newbridge were approximately 4-5 inches below the slab. The river seemed quite quiet today but it was easily paddleable with just a few bumps and scrapes along the way.

Low now on the Dart. Sounds like we will be getting some rain for the weekend, sunday might be worth a look. Check Dartcom http://www.dartcom.co.uk/ we will need about 12mm to put it back on the ledge. Remember Dartcom resets at midnight, so check the rainfall graph in the bottom right hand corner of the page to see if there has been any rain up to midnight that you can then add to the reading up the top of the page ;-)

Is the upper dart going to be worth a run this weekend? It would be the first time on the Upper.

Or the walkam?

Many thanks

Joey

I reckon we're going to just get 'gay rain', not enough for paddling, enough to make everything else miserable.

I'd recommend skipping the paddle and getting an early start in the pub.

No more rain overnight, so it won't have held and 6.8 not really enough to do much to the levels. would say pass and see if we get any change sunday/monday. You coming down next weekend for the Gene 17 adventure paddlers weekend?

Looks like an xbox weekend unfortunately!

North Coast for a surf could be an option for today. The dudes at Constantine bay store reporting 3 to 4 ft with light off shores. Low tides around 11 this morn

I think that is the fairer bet, the forecast is changing a lot, and alas we should start to get better conditions through the next week. Just in time for a small gathering in Devon.....

0.2mm yesterday, followed by 0.2mm today on Dartcom, I think you're probably right...
