The Paddlers Party will be at the River Dart Country Park on Saturday 12th March. All proceeds are going to the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team so a great reason to come down paddle and have a great time knowing you are helping a well worth cause.
Myself and many other coaches and companies are giving up our time free of charge running clinics and coaching sessions on the Saturday, I am offering a guided/ coached descent on the Upper Dart (One space left).
After the day on the water we will be taking over the Saw Mill Bar and there will be an auction for days coaching, equipment again all have been donated I have put forward a days One to One Coaching covering anything you would like from freestyle to creeking or even SUP!

Project Blue Planet is our offering for Worldwide kayak and rafting holidays, initially concentrating in Nepal .
Run by 3 Expert kayakers, coaches and raft guides from Nepal (Ram Silwal), Norway (Barbora Hollan) and the UK (Chris Constantine). This is the result of two years of planning. 2013 will be the first year of full operations.
Offering kayak coaching and paddling holidays, rafting and trekking trips, we are giving back to the community too by training locals to international qualifications in rescue and rafting to increase their knowledge and hopefully give them the option of travelling to distant lands to work as raft guides and kayakers as we have done!
More information will be added to their website and don't worry I will still be running chris-constantine.com for all UK courses

Tomorrow were out on the Usk again and with more rain we should hopefully have sportier levels for the Senni and three falls section for progressive white water coaching
