Parking at Baltic Wharf

As of February 2020, the council have handed over control of parking at Baltic Wharf (i.e. “The Cottage Inn” car park), to the harbour master.

We have seen that the harbour master has put up a sign saying that from 3rd March 2020 the car park will be closed overnight, and they will limit parking to 3 hours maximum.

Obviously if this happens it would be a huge problem. The committee are in discussions with the harbour master’s office about this.

North Wales

Many thanks to Lisa F for organising last weekend’s trip to Wales. 10 of us went and we had a great time.

On Saturday we managed to paddle the Conwy (not the Fairy Glen!). Low water, but most of us had never paddled it before, some of us after trying for 20 years or so to catch it at a paddleable level.

On the Sunday everything was actually a bit low, so we went to the Tryweryn and took Lisa’s Paul down the lower Tryweryn; the others caught us up after playing on the top for a bit.

I’ve got a new bike!

I’ve got a new bike, a Specialized Tricross Sport. Took it for a ride to Tintern via ShireNewton at the weekend.  Now I just have to get a new Mountain Bike and I’m all set.   And before someone says it, yes, this is the first ‘non-canoe’ post on the BCC website. Specialized Tricross Sport
