Matlock Weekend 29-30 June

This was a great weekend run in conjunction with ICC (Ipswich Canoe Club). Although the weather wasn’t hot it remained dry and little wind and the River Derwent provided a great location for those new to moving/white water or for those who just wanting to improve their moving water skills and have a great time.
