Derek said he wouldn’t paddle in the cold.  That was when he joined CAP in November 2011, long before he signed up to negotiate Welsh white-water through snow covered rocks. 

Derek enjoys paddling the quiet River Medway with his wife Carolyn, who has learnt that you can’t keep dry in the front of a Duo going down a canoe shoot.

Likes– collecting useless kayaks found on river trips.

Dislikes – hey, let’s keep this positive!

Greatest Paddling Moment – due next year.

Worst Paddling Moment– never had one.

>Ambitions– to survive the next CAP trip.
