    Default First Thursday Paddle for August?

    Hi chaps
    Is there going to be a Wey subsection First Thursday evening paddle this month?
    I quite fancy the Wey and Arun Canal if nought else has been organised.

    Hi Martin and all

    I was going to post something later. I almost definitely won't be able to make it this Thursday, so go ahead with the W&A suggestion. Its a lovely spot for an evening paddle.

    Annoying thing is I just might finish in time to get there, but will be near Stansted and have to go home to fetch the canoe first, which will add hours...if anything changes I'll let you know.

    Well, that's down to Martin, but I virtually guarantee he's thinking the car park down the track behind the pub at Loxwood.

    http://www.paddlepoints.net/PaddlePoints.php?PP=912

    I normally drive through the gate then right down the far end (past the gravel bit where recycling bins are). Worth checking with pub that the gate isn't going to be closed early, though its always been fine.

    You can then portage straight from car to the far side of the immediate first lock going east.


    But its up to you if you want to do something else!

    What Mal said

    Its only a short canal, about an hour each way, and a lovely paddle back in the dark (with bats if were lucky).

    I can get there by 6 but this might be too early for people who have to work on Thursday so maybe setting off at 7 would be better. A relaxing stop for eats at the far end and travel back in the dusk and a pint in the pub after.

    Bollocks, and a long list of other much more obscene profanities !!!!!!!

    I am looking decidedly doubtful for this evening now. I really enjoy paddling with others but it seems I can only float my boat "on me todd" and "lastminute.com" at the moment. :-(

    This MUST change. I need to get my sh!t sorted and my priorities prioritised !!!!!!!

    Have fun.

    Sorry to mess people about but I've had a bit of a medical emergency involving spending the afternoon in a&e.
    Ok now but will have to give tonight a swerve.
