The Sennybridge Supermarket Shuffle - Usk Trip, January 2014

With the festive season came the rain; long awaited, we welcomed it at first. At last there would be water in the rivers. Then it became clear that after having how to rain for so many weeks it had also forgotten how to stop. When John Spooner posted his picture of the Usk out of its banks the week before the trip we began to question whether an advertised “WW novice suitable” trip was going to be on at all. The Upper Usk has a very short catchment. It rises quickly and falls just as fast.…

RLSCC Awarded £10,000 Grant by Sport England

Earlier this year we put together a project to increase the involvement of older teenagers and young adults in the sport.

We identified that having the right equipment for people to progress in the sport was a problem for us so we built a proposal based around providing that equipment for both racing and recreational activity. Earlier this week we discovered that we have been successful. 

We have already identified the kit we need so expect to see it arriving in the…

The Title "Queen of the Open Boat" is up for Grabs

“Hand on heart, we’ve never had such an eventful Dove Tour!” Janet said, as we walked towards the pub, afterwards. I haven’t been on one before so I really couldn’t judge it for myself. I did have a lot of fun, though, and I got to know the river much better than I’d been expecting to.

We have been to the Dove tour before. I haven’t been able to go, if only I’d known what I was missing!

The tour is terribly well organised. We weren’t. We met, as usual at the…

Fifty Shades of Fun on the Trent

I scowl in frustration at my canoe in the racks. Damn my wayward paddle. It’s fallen down the back and I’m going to have to wriggle in the gap to get it out. I must put it away properly. I must put it away properly. We load our cars onto our roof racks, pulling the straps deliciously tight, and set off for Burton on Trent. This is the first time I’ve not known in advance where the put in is for the trip. I have relinquished control reluctantly and there is a new thrill in not knowing…

Tess, did anyone pick up my wooden paddle on DoggyPaddle Saturday? Left it at fishermans carpark otherwise! Brian

Tess, the doggypaddle website needs updating. On the general info page it says start around 9-30-ish. Also on the second page of the downloadable instructions, it says 9-30 till 10-30 start. Could you correct these the items to 9-00am till 10-00am?

Also on the first page of the instructions the car park fees need updating to £8 for 6 hours, £10 for 12 hours (SUA thieves)

Ta Brian
