Mania And How We Got There

The British Universities Kayaking Expedition is a biennial event that sees a small had picked team of some of the UK’s finest white water paddlers organise and undertake an extended trip to a location of their choosing. Often very remote and undiscovered, there aim is to generally find new stretches of world class white water.

Previous expeditions have explored: Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia & Siberia, Vietnam, Venezuela and Ethiopia. In June 2015 a team of paddlers from British universities set off to explore the rivers of Madagascar. This is the first edit from that trip.

The Short course is often used for ww rescue training with a low flow, but when on full release it creates a superb, but short piece of ww. Conveyer belt access to the top of the course means that multiple runs can be made easily.
