LOCATION CHANGE: Iford Bridge and the River Stour
WE HAVE CHANGED THE START LOCATION DUE TO INCREASING EASTERLY WIND FORECAST. We will now meet at 09.30 for a 10.00 launch from Iford Bridge and paddle down the River Stour towards Mayors Mead. The strength of the wind will make this a much more challenging paddle - please be prepared for this.

About the event
We will now meet at 09.30 for a 10.00 launch from Iford Bridge.
Parking is on the roadside by the river.
Due to the strong easterly wind forecast we will paddle in to the wind initially, from Iford Bridge, heading down the river towards Mayors Mead. This should mean that the wind will be predominantly at our backs for the return leg! If time and conditions permit, we may go as far as Tuckton Tearooms to enjoy a quick cuppa and perhaps a slice of cake!!!
The change in conditions means this has now changed from a relatively leisurely paddle to a much more challenging paddle - please ensure you are prepared for the extra exertion!!
