Dartmoor 2014

So 15 of us from Cambridge University Canoe Club, headed down to Dartmoor for the weekend of the 21/22/23 of Nov. Despite some low water levels, we managed to have everyone out on the Dart Loop both mornings (plus a quick exploratory walk up and paddle down the Webburn); 10 of our more experienced members then headed for a exciting Upper trip on Saturday afternoon; and our 6 least tired paddlers managed a blast down the Teign on the way home on Sunday. A great, but tiring weekend, even with low water.

Beginners Trip 2014

For this years beginners trip Cambridge University Canoe Club headed to South Wales again. After a long first day on the Gwili, we headed back to a favourite of many of the leaders for beginners - the Usk. We ran the section from Sennybridge to Aberbran, and despite a couple of swims, had a great day out on the river. The highlight for most people was the third drop, so here's a compilation of most people going over it!
