Mary Queen of Scots paddle - Sept 2011

What do a bellyflop, a pole dance and a sideways lunge have in common?


The answer – different ways that some paddlers found to overcome the 8 portages and 16 miles of the Club’s trip on the Nene from Oundle to Fotheringhay. This is where Mary Queen of Scots was held and beheaded in 1587) We found the area much more tranquil today!


Richard, Lynette and Graham were our seal launch specialists! Helen, Judi, Mike and Trevor preferred the more ‘controlled’ style of portage.


Quite a tiring day, but a great paddle! With lovely scenery!
