Macclesfield Canal - 29th March 2015

With my son's football game being called off because of the rain, I had an unexpected chance to go for a paddle. I got down to the boathouse when some of the regular sunday morning racing group were starting off, so I tagged on for a few miles. Rather embarrassingly I took a swim at one of the canal bridges whilst going two abreast. Perhaps "J-stroking" a K1 in the wash from other boats was not such a good idea! [the canal narrows at the bridges, and if two boats go through at the same time there is not room to paddle on both sides of the boat]

Went out to Higher Poynton Marina and back... raining all the time, and I was already drenched through from my dunking, so not a pleasant paddle!
