The Darty Dozen

Twelve intrepid paddlers run the Dart

On the 21st of January 2018, Gloucester Canoe Club took a group of 12 paddlers to descend the Dart Loop.  The group consisted of seasoned experts, intermediate paddlers and one or two in our first white water season.  The group consisted of: Ian, Jane, Andy, John, Richard, Jason, Charlotte, Paul, Mike, Alice along with Dave and myself – James.  Ian immediately dubbed us ‘The Dozen on the Dart’.

River Dart & paddlers

We all took a number of turns in tackling such delights as; the Washing Machine, Lovers Leap, Triple Falls, the Spin Dryer and Carnage Weir.  Many of us get to experience the water first hand but all had a wonderful day out and gained tremendous experience.
