Looking for somewhere to paddle next weekend?

The Washburn will be releasing from 9am to 5pm

Two miles of fast flowing grade 2/3 with plenty of features to practice and play on.

A big thank you to York CC for running Sunday's Washburn cruise.

A few of us from south Lakes headed over; two developing youngsters had a whale of a time gaining experience and hitting smaller eddies on faster whitewater than they had previously experienced and - a real bonus - their parents had a chance to watch them as they enjoyed repeat runs of the top of the course. Burgers and brews at reasonable prices and riverside car-parking as well. At risk of increasing the numbers of paddlers turning out - if you haven't been out for a Washburn cruise, give it a go!

Great effort, thank you

It was great day. A few of us from Holme Pierrepont Canoe Club came across to end off our Sleningford Camping Weekend.

Glad you enjoyed it. There are releases throughout the summer run by local clubs.

The next one is Saturday and Sunday 6/7th June, run by West Yorkshire Canoe Club.

Think RoHo will be there with their demo fleet on Sunday.

ALWAYS CHECK THE WEBSITE OR INFORMATION LINE TO SEE IF IT IS RUNNING BEFORE YOU GO - Yorkshire Water govern releases and may not release water if it is too wet or too dry.
