Bentravla, the river Stour is very scenic, paddled it once from Sudbury when staying at Rushbanks Farm. Got the guidebook for the Broads but didn't manage so far to paddle there

Shhhh don't tell people about Rushbanks Farm. It's a lovely campsite and I don't want it getting too well known . Sadly I don't have a kayak, despite living next to a river.

I dabble with a sea kayak, a river kayak and a canoe - not often enough though - in fact only a couple of times this year. I prefer to sea kayak but living a a few miles N of Derby it's not that convenient!

I used to be a kayaker but too much work this year so I haven't even managed evening paddles on the Conwy. North Wales has some excellent paddling.

We are keen sea kayakers...Often in Scotland or Anglesey in the summer months. It's been too windy for us in October and November. But we might have a go at paddling up/ down the River Lune estuary one fine winter's day. I'll post something up in the Spring...

I suppose it's not really the season for river paddling, an icy dip doesn't go down well with most people, unless they have a dry suit perhaps. I've shot rivers in a February spate without one, though that was probably more bravado than common sense. A winter canal paddle might suit some. I've got to agree with your sentiment though, I have the Welsh Dee on my doorstep, the Severn is 20 miles away, the Mersey and Ribble are 40 miles away. As an owner of two Canadian canoes I desperately need a new lady paddler, apply within!

A friend and I kayak tour around the south although we'll likely venture further afield this year. Last year we did the Wye over 5 days and canoed the Thames the year before over 7 days.

We would be up for joining others or people coming down to us, we live by the Thames in Twickenham.

thanks to all your replies so far. I have posted in invite for the Dove Tour in March, hope that some of you may be able to join me, would be good to meet up.
Cathy (and David): would be great if you would post an invite. I plan to do the classic Loch Shiel Round but extended north to Loch Hourn after Easter.
Cooperatron: I do love multi-day trips, did all of the 4 big scottish rivers from source to sea already, Wye and Severn in sections only. Down south I only did the Thames Tideway, Arun, Adur, and the area around Poole Harbour

Flat cap (Mike): Hi Mike. Hopefully I'll be getting an inflatable canoe for some inland paddling before the summer. I'll keep you posted

Flat cap (Mike)   on 28/01/19 @ 19:34 said:

Hi Ian, I've got an inflatable that I don't really use and which you are welcome to try. It's a WW type with rigid floor. If you are interested give me a shout, and I got it down from the loft and pump it up to see whether it's still ok

iansmyname.....orisitjohn?   on 29/01/19 @ 20:37 said:

Flat cap (Mike): Thanks Mike. Yes would like to give it a try out. Let me know if it's still ok and we can arrange something

Cathy (and David )   on 20/02/19 @ 17:03 said:

For those who are interested...We kayaked at Ullswater last week in a force 3 ? gale...felt like the sea! Let me know if any of you are coming up Cumbria way in the near future and we can meet up. Ruth, we'll definitely make it to Derwent water one weekend soon...

Hi Everyone. I am a kayaker based in Derbyshire. I travel with my club for touring trips such as the Dee and local canals. Also have done the Windermere solstice event each year as well as the Conwy Ascent in my sea Kayak. Love touring lakes and canals. I also mess about in my slalom boat at Matlock . Good to know there are some other paddlers around.

Hi Mike et al.
I%u2019ve a few SOT kayaks at a beach in north lincs at the mouth of the river Humber, and access to more in Scotland that I%u2019ll be getting out soon.
Had a couple of paddles at sea this year, my favourite spot around Haille Sand Fort.
