Mersey Descent

Lojska and I took part in the open canoe event of the Mersey Descent race with Richard and Isobel:It was a fun event. The organisation was good and the weather was pleasant but the turnout was very poor. I hope that more people hear about it for next year.

The highlight was the weir in Northenden. We took on a fair bit of water and had to stop and empty the boat shortly afterwards:

We won the event but at the cost of a big dint in the bow of the boat, courtesy of a rock just after the broken weir at Sale Water Park:
