Re: Clare Glens Notice

Hey, I think what Rosco means (correct me if I am wrong) is to get off river left 50+ meters above "sidewinder", then walk back to path that leads to "top drop" and follow it the long way down to the foot bridge to inspect the Sidewinder - Constriction . If you are going to portage the rapid then go...

Re: Instructors saftey standards

Right Oh, Since I have a bit of time before after work boating in Wicklow this evening said I'd dip my toe in this one.

The conservation ranger for the Clare Glens has been in contact with me to help with conserving our local paddling spot. They don't wish to stop canoeing or kayaking within the glens but they do need to protect the site. The following are recommendations that they have made. Your co-operation with ...

Re: Gauge alternative

Funny you should say, I was actually thinking about this lately, I was thinking even a PDA or phone running S60 would be able to handle it.It all just seemed very straight froward.? As I'm far from a computer whiz I reckoned the lads knew more than me and they had the best route... If it was I'd alm...

Having attended the AGM myself I can say that Seanie's summary is a fair and accurate account of the events that took place.

Re: Paddling in the Alps, any words of wisdom?

Seanie, Would have thought an auld river dawg like your self was a Alps vet at this stage..... Less words of wisdom and more common sense... Like the song says, wear sunscreen ! Drink less beer and more water, sounds like a shite thing to do but you want to make the most of your time there. Dress fo...

Re: Upper Liffey Gauge

Lads,

Thats savage stuff from ye, it a massive resource to have and when the new features come on line it will be unreal for the after work boating.

Re: Could this finially be what we are waiting for...

Simon, We have some online gauges at the moment which can provide real time data, sadly they all seem to be out of operation so its back to the good old days of rain fall radars combined with a phone book of folks living in the areas. Ah for the perfect world where we would have live gauges on every...
