    The Big Bann Canoe Challenge (2019)

    CAPS canoe club (County Antrim Paddle Sports) have been running this event for 8 years, and I’ve always had something else on, so this year I jumped at the chance to go along and help out.

    Welcome to the forum. In the absence of Mal Grey who normally suggests this as a starting point, try paddle points

    Here's a video of it being used. You can see that the mast goes down to the floor but there's no foot needed.

    You can also see the Lee board. I was running down wind so had it pulled up.

    Yes that's all that's needed. I find it works without a mast foot so it's much simpler.

    It does mean you can forget to bring it though. Lol.

    Oh boy am I glad you asked that. I've just packed my car for a trip tomorrow and this thread reminded me I haven't packed my mast foot.

    Yes when I watched it I thought about the one I made. I spent many hours in the garden with the paddle in a Black and Decker work mate to hold it. Then removed the excess with a plane and a spoke...

    Bloomin hard things to catch on camera, you did well to do what you did.

    Looks like you all had fun. Good intro for the boys to the outdoor life.

    I like the look of that stand and I might copy it, although mine will be steel bar which would mean it could be used over...

    I think you are only "viewing" the music with wmp. You have to transfer the files into a folder on the laptop. Then view it in the new folder.

    You should take your pole with you. There's a lovely section above the red bridge for polling. See if you can get up as far as the white water course. If my shoulder is better by then I'd go with you.

    I use mine more often for a wind break at lunch stops because as you know it seldom rains in Ireland................... Yeah right!

    You don't need spacers. Just put two nuts on each bolt. Put the first nut on each bolt at at the required depth, then the box, then the second nut, then tighten the inside nut against the other one.
