Many of you have shared your tours on the water this summer. It’s only fair I share mine.

At the start of summer we put out a “call for trekkers” to map waterways.

Many of you have been exploring stretches of water around the globe.

Here are some of the places I’ve shot this summer on my standup paddleboard.

The River Thames, England

Transport type: SUP

346 km in total. I covered about 100 km this year between Oxford and Kew on a paddle-board. From big cities and million Pound mansions to rolling hills and farm yards.

Wey Navigations, England

Transport type: SUP

My “local” river. Passing through the beauty of the Surrey countryside from Godalming to Weybridge where it joins the Thames. My only complaint – navigating through the many locks! Life could be worse.

Basingstoke Canal, England

Transport type: SUP

The Basingstoke Canal runs for 51 kilometres, from Greywell Village in Hampshire to Woodham in Surrey. My only complaint – more locks!

Kennet and Avon Canal, England

Transport type: SUP

The Kennet and Avon Canal is a waterway in southern England with an overall length of 140 kilometres, made up of two lengths of navigable river linked by a canal. My only complaint – even more locks!

Call for Winter trekkers

The good weather is still around, at least in the UK, and I’m hoping to capture some more locations before the winter weather returns.

Watch out for an update in the next month with a call for winter trekkers.

Update November 2019: Call for Trekkers: Winter / Spring 2020.
