Maidenhead Swelter

7 June 2020

The Paddlers of Maidenhead have been making the most of the recent warm weather. Exploring the back waterways of the Thames around Maidenhead and Cookham.

From The Ferry at Cookham and the stream running along side John Lewis’s Odney Country Club, the white house Spring Cottage at Cliveden Lord Astor use to rent it to Stephen Ward for a £1 a year, now it fetches £2500 a night complete with a butler. We get to visit the garden for free each day.

Each weekday evening during the summer we will be paddling every Monday and Wednesday from Boulters Lock. All board owners are welcome to join us. At the moment, there will be strictly groups of no more than 6. If more people arrive, then they will be asked to form a separate group and be asked to keep more than 8 metres away from the first group, and so on. Since Social Distancing is easy to maintain when out on the water, the only issue is when we head out onto the water or return. We ask all paddlers to be caring of others and to take their time.

If you are interested in joining one of the weekday evening paddles, please email us for details.

Finally, we have been training on the sailing lake in Maidenhead and also having our yoga session. These can bee booked through out links on the Training Base page. We have various classes throughout the week.

If you like what we do and what to help support us, why not become a member.
