Black Rabbit to Amberley

The key to paddling this lovely river is the tide. Obvious, really, but critical too: you can’t fight it, but go with it and you’ll make 4 knots. Four of us, Sarah, Mark, Paul and Stephen, launched at Black Rabbit, just above Arundel. Read Stephen’s full account of the Arun trip here

Summer Regatta or .. just messing about in boats!

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

A good number of Hamptoneers and their friends and family took part in the the Annual Hampton Canoe Club Fun Regatta last Saturday morning. There were events to test your ingenuity, your agility and your speed on the water. Jenny has written up the official account here. (with pictures)
