Originally the trip had been to run the Dart, but due to the lack of water around, and unsure of when the rain would drop, the trip was rescheduled for Symonds Yat.
We all arranged to meet at the launch point at 10.00 and go from there.
After everyone got ready with their kit, Stew announced that he would take charge of the trip and then, as Stew does, proceeded to make us run up and down in front of the pub (and locals) before doing breathing exercises and stretches.. I'm so glad I'd just put on my skull cap, ready for some cold water! Not.
