After waking up to see that the river levels were high, we decided to head over to the Swale which was at at level of 1.47 metres. When we finally got to the Swale it had dropped to 0.95 metres.
After a day of paddling, we had managed to find some new and interesting lines (I wouldn't advise taking the same line by David Lawton, which is now the new 'man line') and Ben also managed to have to have his paddle stolen of him by an undercut. Apart from all of this it was a good days paddling.
Some members of Carlisle canoe club and me went up to Scotland for a weekend and we managed to paddle the Roy and the Orchy. Here is a quick video of the trip which includes little bits of both rivers.
