Despite some rain, Sunday 5th January saw no improvement on the water levels from Saturday so any plans of doing the Duddon or Esk had to be abandoned.
Three participants from Ian’s outing on Saturday (Brian, Mike, and Sten) returned to the River Eden again with three new recruits (Peter Riley, John Gallagher and Emma S).
The level was only three centimetres lower than the day before at 0.76m but it was surprising what a difference this made to the quality of the play waves. A few had disappeared altogether, most were still there but were a lot smaller than expected for such a small change in level. There was no need to scrape though and we did plenty of playing on the way down.
There were a few rolls mainly as the result of playing and Brian learn the you cannot take the spray deck off a play boat mid river without it filling with water.
Another good trip, in good company thanks to all for coming.
