  • BDCC & Letchworth Festival

    Thanks to the vision and efforts of Chris Price BDCC is exhibiting at Letchworth Festival this Sunday, 21st June. Chris has mobilised the whole Club around this event and promoting canoeing as an awesome sport, which is why I wanted to hear more from Chris.

  • Southwold Trip


    Having camped at Southwold many times before, I felt it was the ideal destination for a social weekend and paddle for our club.

    17 of us descended on the campsite during Friday afternoon and evening. Some from as far as West Wales!

    Although I knew the harbour well, I had never studied the river Blythe before and realised when you look at water through a paddlers eyes it's quite a different entity.

    There was the tide to consider, plus swirls, boils and under currents.

    Saturday morning, the sun shone and the water beckoned with the incoming tide, as

  • Tryweryn Review

    The weekend took off to a great start when 5 of us met up at the old JJ's in Llangollan and spent the whole afternoon playing about in the river. Thanks to Craig's never ending enthusiasm [probably brought on by the Haribo sweets he'd bought at the services] we all got to body surf down a drop and glide across and back. Great fun!

  • Rain, hitching and a submarine

    Well it was about time there was another three blind mice trip... With the threat of a severe weather warning issued for much of England and Wales, the scene was set – for once, a trip that I've organised might be in for some water!

  • Intermediate Dart Trip 2015

    The river Dart was at medium levels (an inch below the 'slab') when we arrived at Newbridge on the Saturday morning.
    Four of the advanced paddlers went off to tackle the Upper stretch leaving the other nine to the Loop. Most of whom were at intermediate level, with a couple having their first taste of a rapid river.
    An enjoyable afternoon was had by all. All of the features were negotiated safely, with only a couple of swimmers at 'Lovers Leap' and 'Triple Drop'
    The Sunday was spent on the Walkham, a pretty tree lined river that runs into the
