May half term expeditions

Silver training: destination South Downs: 4 groups trekked from Bramber Castle to Arundel Station via Washington and Amberley.  Surprisingly cool & cloudy & windy weather but no rain.  All groups performed really well on the big second day which involved some significant climbs and 10 hours of hiking for some of them.  Several individuals showed confident navigation skills and all groups aspired to near-perfect LEAVE NO TRACE camping.

2 Bronze canoe groups completed a 2 day overnight canoe adventure on the Basingstoke Canal for their training expedition.  Excellent reports were received.  Well done to our pioneering canoeists!  Pictures emailed to me for this blog would be welcome.
