What I paddled today thread

Heres the idea: Every time you go for a paddle, you can post what you did here, i.e. which river, boat, distance and anything else that happened while you paddled, any strange events or weirs you shot etc.

I'll start the ball rolling, and set the bar high!!!

Today I paddled 19km flatwater in a K1 ( racing boat) between inistioge and New Ross, in KIlkenny, River Nore.

Two swans chased us down the river for a while!

OK, I know its not that interesting, but its a start, and I like flatwater!!!

Okay, I know it's a bit late, but I paddled the Liffey on Saturday with the UCD club, Sluice down to Wren's nest. It was the highest I've seen the river in ages. The fish boxes on Lucan weir were...sporty to say the least! I didn't chance them, but saw a couple of people get a hard time on them.

2 Dereen carlow

Out on the Dereen in Carlow on Sunday - good old tullow kc haunt - great run - nasty strainer to be avoided after the gorge. found a new hole to throw the boat into and had plenty of rolling practice in it, resulting in ice cream head - lovely !!!!
missed getting chased by the swans and bit by the farmers dogs at aghade - I sorta felt the day wasnt complete ?

Its part for the ICU Wild Water Racing Committee's race series, it takes place on the river Slaney just outside Tullow Co. Carlow some more info on that strech of water can be found HERE.

Its normally Wave Hoppers / wild water racers and that kinda jazz, thay have a GP class as far al I know.


The river is class 2/3 but with the lack of rain as of late it will be class dog low.

theres two races, a longer one on saturday, starting in tullow, and a short sprint on sunday at the bridge in aghade. you do two sprints on sunday and your combined time counts . . .
