Dear Simon, Mark and Pete,

Hello - if the rivers aren’t bonkers on Sunday, my preference for venue would be the Lower Duddon, the Clough or maybe the Sprint.

If the Lower Duddon, we could leave a car, or cars, by the bridge and run the gorge section several times before continuing to the egress. Alternatively, run the gorge section several times to optimise the day, practice lines, eddies etc.  Lots of white water action and good quality training. 

With the Clough, we could combine it with the Lower Rawthey.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you.


Mark H.
