Wednesday 12th February
Stick Test 45 seconds. EA Status Red. Flow at Walton 126 m3/second. Wind speed 26/37 kph. 7 degrees C. Sunny and nice.
We have single scullers out who say that the river is good, but the wind not. So we are okay today, but will now assess again on Thursday and Friday mornings at 10 a.m. We are keeping an eye on Storm Dennis as to its strength and arrival time.
