Canoe Adventure October

posted 17 Oct 2014, 09:44 by Sailing Secretary
Upper Thames Sailing Club at Bourne End  kindly invited the Canoe Section to launch there for our latest adventure on  a new stretch of the River Thames. A small group of paddlers (some members had been put off by the weather forecast) paddled downstream through two locks to Maidenhead and enjoyed coffee and cakes at Jenner's Cafe. On the way back we enjoyed a dramatic view of Cliveden House (famous as the place where John Profumo met Christine Keeler in the 1960s). Bird sightings included a kingfisher and a red kite. Check out the photos on our FlickR site including a sequence showing the section going through Boulters Lock at Maidenhead. The adventure finished as usual in a Pub. This time we enjoyed a good sit down meal at the 'The Spread Oak' at Bourne End.
