Thameside 1 2016

Sunday 7th Feb saw another successful day for Pangbourne CC at Thameside 1, a 12 mile paddle from Aldermaston Wharf , on the Kennt and Avon canal turning left onto the Thames to finish upstream at Reading Canoe Club.
The canal and river were flowing fast and it was windy, presenting challenging stretches, particularly through Reading town centre and paddling up against the flow in the wind back to Reading CC.
