BUCS Slalom 2018 - Tees Barrage International White Water Centre
A very chilly 8 hour journey from Exeter to Teeside on the Friday left the team tired before the weekend even started, but thankful we weren't camping due to being well and truly 'up north'. The Saturday consisted of the Male K1 event (Tom, Sam, Dan, Adam), Sunday consisted of Womens K1 (Phoebe and Natalie), and mixed class session, including C1 and C2 boats, and the team event in the afternoon. AE chuffed with putting up 2 finishing times on the board on the hardest white water to date (ov ...

DofE Nav Practice - Venford Reservoir
@AdamEvans: A day on Dartmoor practicing our feature-finding skills. Included map reading, walking on a baring, pacing, timing, contouring, and justification of position. A few minor hiccups due to some boundaries being marked in blue and some leats in black, or not marked at all, however we muddled through and concluded it's much safer to use contour lines and other non-movable features to prove your location! Perfect weather for a day on the moors.

Introduction to the Quay - The Quay Climbing Centre
Introducing Miriam to 'proper' indoor climbing. Group of 3 climbing doesn't usually work however using auto-belays made it go smoothly. Tonio peaking at 6a, Miriam 6b and Adam climbing 6b+. A grueling session left all participants aching for days. Other colleagues very jealous!

Inaugural Stratos Outing - Saltford
Inaugural outing for the newly acquired K1s after work on Saltford Shallows @JonnyC: With a little haste we organised ourselves after work (with more effort on Rich's part than mine) to get the paddling gear to Saltford. Fettling was curtailed at first by the gathering of an audience (never pleasant for a launch), so a swift entry followed by a wave to the crowd and a paddle away to safety. Some minor adjustments and we were underway, heading down to Saltford Lock b ...

Birthday Celebrations - Dart Rock Climbing Centre
A family climbing trip to the indoor wall in Buckfastleigh. With 3 self belay walls and approx. 10 roped walls, as well as two bouldering rooms, the centre has a wide variety of difficulties. A brilliant way to spend a birthday!

Zig-Zagging the Avon and Kennet - Avon and Kennet Canal, Dundas Aquaduct
After a somewhat distracted morning with a roof tent, this was the first proper trip in the K2 for AE. With RM as front man, AE had control of the rudder leading to a much longer trip than necessary. Once the steering was under control, the return trip was a somewhat serene experience despite the physical strain. With no wind and, by some miracle, no rain, the perfect weather for paddling led to a successful afternoon, even returning before dark. Max speed: 9.3km/h Moving av.: 5.9km/h T ...

Redpoint bouldering - Redpoint Climbing Centre
long bouldering session with some friends, working on tidying up some previous completed routes and tackling the crux's of some unfinished projects. @Kyle: arriving at around 3:30 pm for my third climb, Deans second and Georges first we signed in and we took a walk round showing George the layout of the centre. booted and ready to go we moved to the traverse wall to warm up and then into the upper boulder chamber to finish stretching. Suffering from some pretty serious blisters due to soft ...
