Washburn

Matt, Brian, Sten, Mark, Rob and Pete made the trip over to Yorkshire to paddle the River Washburn; a Grade II/III dam release river. As it was only releasing from 09:00 – 13:00, we met early to make the most of the water.

We completed several runs of the top section, walking back to the start each time, spending lots of time playing on the many features that the Washburn has to offer.  Robinhood Watersports were in attendance with their extensive range of demo boats, which Sten made full use of trying a different boat on almost every run.  The day finished with a run of the full river down to the lower reservoir, with just enough time to spare before the water was turned off.

A good day was had by all.
