Six Hamptoneers enjoyed a sunny paddle from the Bells Of Ouzeley public house up to Windsor (and back) last Saturday. Read new member Maxine’s account of the trip here.
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

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)
