As you may have noticed, the last month has been a good month for rain and as such, a good month for kayaking. Whilst everybody else across the country has been moaning about the weather we’ve been making the most of the flows with a few trips to the weirs that the Thames has to offer, it’s been great fun. Old hands have been practising their panams, intermediates have been trying to get the hang of those flatspins and blunts and even those that only started paddling this year have been getting to grips with all that the Thames has to throw at them!
It’s been a lot of fun and everybody has learnt a lot. It has been great to watch everybody improve so quickly and seeing everyone gradually getting the hang of moves and techniques that they were wiping out on at the beginning of the day.
Let’s pray for more rain!
