160 Mile Yorkshire Jaunt

Myself and Jason Raper recently succeeded in completing a full decent of the River Ure, 160 miles. I can only assume the list of people to achieve this is fairly short and it was not high on our list of things to do. Unfortunately the tragic loss of a friend whilst kayaking on New Years …

Party season has started

Just returned from a superb trip out to Italy. The weather was miserable but the water was excellent. The Sesia valley is an absolute must for any keen white water kayaker. You can go as hard as you want and the camp site has a really nice vibe and fantastic food. In the morning stroll …

Just returned from a kayakers ultimate smash and grab holiday. We unfortunately arrived to late to take part in the Sjoa festival but it looked to be a great success and one to look out for next year. With only 7 days we maximised our water time and with everything high it wasn’t hard to …

Myself and fellow Fat Cat Sam Ellis judged the event which hopefully will get bigger every year. Yesterday evening was spent …

Good to be home

                                                          After an fantastic trip to New Zealand its good to be back on my local run.  I had a good weekend, despite a disappointing day on sunday after lots of rain but still low water and a trip to A&E for a friend.                                         



Just A quick note to say were still waiting for the weather to clear down here in Queenstown, New Zealand. Wet does not do the discription justice. The rivers are  rather high, with the shotover usually rafter at 50 m^3 and it currently on around 500m^3 and summer starting offically tomorrow we will see if the …

BC An Amazing Adventure

Ive just got back from a fantastic trip to British Columbia with the boys from Fat Cats Productions. What a adventure, amazing water, scetchy information, cashed cars and  the odd angry local. Off to help out with the National youth Series here in the UK this weekend as I’m not confident in Jamie’s water. We’ll …
