Gloucester Hasler – K1 Kayak Racing

Following on from my baptism of fire in the Tewskesbury Hasler a few weeks ago I thought it was time to give it another go. This time at the Gloucester Hasler. I don’t think two races quite make me a kayak racer but it’s a start. I had at least now paddled a K1 a...

Kayaking and Camping at Llyn Geirionydd

It would have been nice to continue my Coast Path Run on Saturday, but the Colwyn Bay Blast had finished my legs off for the day so there was to be none of that running malarkey. I’d been invited to join the Dyffryn Conwy Paddlers on Sunday though for a kayaking session at Llyn Geirionydd in...

Kayak Time Trial in Llyn Padarn

You know me, I always have a new project on the go! Recently I’ve patched up a very old surf ski that I have. I’ve been out for little jaunts on the estuary on it. The surf ski is old, it still takes on a little bit of water and its very unstable but I’ve been having...


Canoeing in Cwm Rheidol

The hot humid weather with thunderstorms threatening was just perfect and the gravel pits in Cwm Rheidol certainly looked inviting..As usual there was a fair bit of time spent sorting the Scouts out with buoyancy aids,...

A Wet and Wild Weekend

We’ve just got back from an activity weekend away with the Scouts. This time, rather than organise the activities ourselves Anna and I decided it would be easier to let Llandysul Paddlers do this. So we had booked into their bunk house and arranged various activities through them, and they even collected us from Borth in...

Blue Peter Sports Badge at the Llain Activity Centre

On Thursday I went to the Llain Activity Centre.  I’ve been there before with cubs but this time I went with my friend.  We started with climbing and I was the fastest in my group then we did archery. After lunch was what I was looking forward to the most though because we were doing...
