Dart Loop with the So’ton Crew

I had the privilege of paddling with the Upper Hamble Canoe Club on the weekend. Staying at Finlake, we were treated to a Swiss style chalet- which was great for drying out our kit in the super-cold weather. River levels were a tad on the low side, but fun was had by all on the Dart loop. Some random photos below:

There were some neat sections with some descent pop-out spots (namely on the small rapid below washing machine). There were ample stern squirt spots on the way down the river, but one of the best was at the rapid called Lovers Leap. Here is a video of some of Sunday’s fun and frolics.
