Waterside ‘D’

DW Training update: Well done Daniel Bownds in completing his first Waterside D (34.5 miles, 23 portages) in a respectable 8 hours 40 mins. Good conditions but tough going as Dan had a head cold and his C2 partner was using his new paddle the wrong way round. Fortunately a top C2 team pointed this out at 15 miles!

A ‘big’ thankyou to our support team of Andrew Wallace, Anne-Lise Christmas and Jenny John Chuan. Who ferried us to and from the course. Provided us with warm smiles, encouragement, food and drink.

Only 13 days to the start of DW!
