Well done to everyone who helped out over the weekend, both here and elsewhere on the river. An especial shout-out to Andy Garlick (Meridian CC) for organising it. And who's that on the telly?
With the Slovenia trip coming up, it seemed a good time to post this video made by a friend of mine (Jake Holland of The Adventure Tap). Bob's almost 70, and paddling the Soca. What's your excuse? ;-)

It's the big Medway Clean-Up this weekend - all the Canoe Clubs who use the river (plus fishing Clubs, boaters, and other river users) will be out picking up whatever detritus is lying around. There's a rumour the BBC might be covering it, so if you turn up you may even be on the telly! Bin-bags etc. will be provided - meet at the Club on Sunday at the usual time (9:30).
A fantastically sunny day on the Mole today - if you missed it for some reason, here are some photos courtesy of Ian:
Unfortunately Richard isn’t able to take boats to the pool for the May session, so we’ll have to use roof racks. If you’ve got space on your roof rack, please let Lee know so he can help everyone get boats down there. Thanks!
Water levels look reasonable for tomorrow's paddle - see you there.
The sun is shining, and everyone‘s out paddling! The newsletter deadline is coming up in a few weeks, so it would be great to hear about what you’ve been up to over the last couple of months. The newsletter only works because of you lovely people, so please jot something down and send it over! Trips, gear reviews, thoughts, poetry - all welcome!
