One of the club's favourite trips is the annual Hamble Paddle. This year we set off at the crack of 9.30 from Swanwick Hard and let the tide drift us upstream. There were thirteen of us in twelve kayaks, which is getting close to all of them.
We paddled right up towards Botley sometimes bumping along the bottom and having to wait for the tide to lift us over the boulders. We went right under the road at Botley Mill stopping under the weir at the old wharf.
We then headed round to Curbridge for lunch at The Horse & Jockey pub. Excellent!
