Hampton DW paddlers training hard – 5 weeks to go!

DW training update: Will and Sam paddled from Marlow to Hampton and Andrew Wallace and myself paddled from Maidenhead to Hampton. The river is calming down, though we decided to do a long portage through Windsor to give the weir a wide berth. Maidenhead to Hampton (including the long way round the Desborough Cut) – 26 miles in 4.5 hours. Ice cream reward at the end 🙂

Thank you to Andrew and Will for driving.
