Lost Ainsworth C100 canoe paddle Tees Abbey Rapids

As per the title. Lost an Ainsworth C100 paddle on Abbey Rapids on the Tees on Sunday. The usual plain black and had a worn patch in the plastic covering halfway up the shaft.

I don't know if this is the same one, but I spotted a black canoe paddle on the bank river left a couple of hundred metres upstream of Whorlton bridge yesterday (01/01/15). It was on a footpath next to the river near a stone bench.

I'm afraid we couldn't stop to recover it as were in kayaks and headed towards Winston bridge.
Done any NE/NW rivers not on the site? PM me!

Sounds like it could well be. Mine was plain black. Unfortunately I'm back home in North wales now so fuel to go and check would cost more than a decent new replacement paddle, let alone that one. :-(
