Colin's Canoeing Page


My name is Colin and I have been a Canadian canoeist for about fourteen years, though I have done kayaking before that.

I have canoed extensively in the UK and on the Continent with my family and friends in the Canoe-Camping club section of the Caravanning and Camping Club of Great Britain. This is a very friendly club who have encouraged me and coached me in their free time.

This is my guide to some of my favourite runs that I have enjoyed. Guide books give descriptions, but photos can be a bit thin on the ground, or should I say water.

I hope to add to this site as I get more photos.
