The Canoe Section follow their leader (Kathy) across the main channel from Itchenor

Creek crawling in Bosham Hoe
Arrival at Bosham was carefully timed to coincide with 'happy hour' at the Sailing Club (in the background)

Happy hour at Bosham Sailing Club

Our adventures are not just exciting, they are educational too: Kathy gives us a talk on Bosham history

The canoe section re-enacts the famous historical moment when King Canute tried to stop the tide at Bosham
Although the section failed to stop the tide, we were just in time to buy some ice creams.

We had to battle a force 5 headwind and some quite big waves leaving Bosham...

....but we found calmer waters on the other side of the river.

Our adventure ended with a sit down meal at the 'The Ship Inn' in Itchenor.
