River Nene

The first of the regular club paddles away from Rutland was well supported with seven members braving the forecast as we set off from Wansford downstream.

We made our way to Water Newton where Howard developed an interesting technique for getting out of his kayak. Not to be outdone Lynette showed us all how to 'wedge' a boat while seal launching after the break! Needless to say Rod, Barry and Pau all made it look very easy.

By now the sun was out and a fresh breeze made it 'interesting' for Jools in the open as we headed back upstream. The 'Wansford Flyer' made a perfect appearance as we came back under the railway bridge.
