White Water Trip - Lent term 2018 - HPP

Saturday 17th February saw a convoy of cars containing 19 keen paddlers setting off from the club sheds, for what must surely be one of CUCC’s largest trips to HPP whitewater course (Nottingham). There was a mix of whitewater beginners, a polo player, freestylers, river runners and even a photographer (Dan armed with his gopro-on-a-stick) and a dedicated mostly-bank-based coach (Shahid, sparing his shoulders).

White Water Safety And Rescue Training

Towards the end of March I headed up to North Wales along with Witty, Michael G, Martin and Forbes, to spend a weekend doing our Whitewater Safety and Rescue Training. The weekend promised to be a cold and wet one, but not without its' fun. We spent the first day above 'The Chipper' on the Tryweryn, practicing our rescue of swimmers using reaching and throwing aids as well as some live bait rescues, involving leaping into the water to rescue a swimmer whilst tethered to your partner by a rope.
