I've become competent in a range of canoeing disciplines over the years, although never excelling in any of them! I started in slalom (K1 then C1 and C2), moving on to canoe polo and now sea kayaking. Along the way, I have done a fair bit of white water recreational paddling, surfing and WWR.
My other main interest is hill walking.
We had a pleasant paddle down the Exe from Countess Wear to Turf Locks and then back up the canal. The weather was good, with the gentle wind blowing us along the canal to match the assistance that we had from the tide going down the river.
