Yesterday I finally did a kayak trip that I’ve wanted to do for quite a while.
It was my first UK paddle of the season… I paddled from Barcombe Mills to the New Haven Estuary in East Sussex. It was a fantastic trip!
I have been carefully watching the weather and the tide times… at 16.00 yesterday conditions were looking perfect… There’d been quite a bit of rain upstream from Barcombe, High tide at Newhaven was at about 14.30 and there was a strong behind wind. I was on the water at 16.30 and the current picked right up and went in my favour all the way to the estuary. It really reignited my love for paddling moving river water.
I can’t wait to get up to Yorkshire and do some canoeing with these guys… http://www.triitoutdoorpursuits.co.uk/ They are a local adventure sports company that we hope to work with for the provision of some of the adventure sports that we’ll offer at The Bivouac.
