Gemma brings us the summer 2014 issue of the Regents Canoe Club newsletter.
In the latest issue, as you would expect, we have the annual Alps Report which will give you some insight as to what we got up to last month in France. The weather was not always brilliant but the adventures and carnage were plentiful. Read what everyone has to say was their best bits.
In addition to this Phil Seely has given us an article on what it was like to actually raft Chateau Q, upping the numbers of Regenters who managed to navigate this challenging gorge, if not in an actual kayak. I particularly encourage everyone to have a read of Eoin A. Murray’s article – The Ultimate Endurance Test – in which he recounts his epic trip from Devises to Westminster…in 24 hours!
We also have a few words from those who have recently undergone additional training which as you know benefits everyone at the club. Steffi Thorhauer and Ian Tokelove did their Level 2 and Wilderness First Aid training respectively.
David Midgley’s film about his epic travels down the Amazon are potentially up for an award so I have added a shameless plug in order to get his as many votes as possible. Support your fellow Regenter! And at the 11th hour Sean Clarke has kindly submitted a piece on kayaking the Verdon Gorge. All a bit last minute and a long way to travel for the weekend but we would expect nothing less from Mr Clarke. And that’s it! Happy reading!
