Day 15 Saturday: Isle de Serre White Water Centre

We did not have to leave until the middle of the afternoon so while some rushed to pack up and try to get an earlier train or ferry we took our time. Stuart and Roy walked into the town for Breakfast while Sara and Keith went for a bike ride to explore the area. They found small French towns, boulangeries and a medieval fort and chapel.

When back at the WW course we thought we would hire Hydrospeeds and take on the course from in the water – after all how hard could it be as Fiona, Sara and Steph made it look easy the day before.

We kitted up and after a very short briefing we took to the water. Our first run was just a taster and we drifted down through most of the waves, made a few eddies but it was really hard work kicking those flippers and trying to make the moves of a kayak.

Our second run meant that we could try to surf the waves, Stuart made it look easy and once Roy had mastered the float, his energetic style had him flying around the river like an angry wasp. Sara managed some excellent surfs in the bottom wave. All too soon our hour was up, and we returned to the office area for an ice-cream or ice lolly. Totally exhausted we took our time to pack up the rest of the tents and headed off on our journey home. Keith and Sara took to the N roads and quaint French villages to join the motorway at Dijon leaving the others to chug along the autoroutes and the port of Calais. Steph and Leanne reported that they had managed to stock up by buying out the wine hypermarket in Calais.

Thank you to all the club members that made it out to France this year to make it another fab holiday in the sun.
