Iford Bridge to Mudeford Quay - River Stour and Christchurch Harbour.
Distance - 4 miles ish
Time - 2 hours to all day
A short and easy but very satisfying trip for all sorts of craft - SUPS, kayaks but yesterday we did it in open canoes, mainly so we could take the dog along.
Places we go, things we do #1
River Piddle - Wareham Channel - Arne Heath
One of the problems with A-B trips is the shuttle, dropping paddlers and boats at one end and making sure everyone and everything can be collected again from the other. This post describes a trip on the River Piddle and Poole Harbour with a novel approach to solving the problem of the shuttle.
Extend your adventure with our range of canoe camping equipment; we trust it because we use it ourselves.
Stuff you may not know we can get...
Over a couple of days last week two of us fatbiked and packrafted from Portland Bill to Old Harry down here in Dorset, with an overnight camp on the shores of Poole Harbour - a top adventure.
Bikes we don't do, packrafts not yet but expedition gear for canoeing and kayaking is something we can get and will be doing more of. On this journey in particular we used:
An Exped Scout Tarp Extreme for our bivvy. I've been using these for years; they're tough, light, well designed, packable and versatile. They're also my favourite tarp for canoe sailing with an A-Frame and rafted canoes - big enough for plenty of power, small enough to control: http://www.exped.com/international/en/product-category/tents/scout-tarp-extreme
