Meghalaya - Trip Talk with Jamie Conn

Thursday 26th March - 6.30pm @ AS Watersports
In the last few years local kayaker Jamie Conn has escaped the clutches of his guidebook, and headed to far flung places in the hope of ticking off a few first descents of his own. Last Autumn he joined a group of friends for an exploratory trip to Meghalaya in Northeast India.

Meghalaya is very wet (as in wettest place on Earth wet) and the rivers fall very quickly down towards Bangladesh, typically in very long and very large gorges. Still, armed with satellite imagery and local support, the team stumbled across some fantastic multi-day rivers and despite lost kayaks, monsoon floods, malaria and a particularly sketchy incident with a rioting mob, had a pretty epic time.

Thursday 26th February 6.30om
We are hosting another fantastic Thursday Night at AS Watersports!

Hear Gary Peverill from Inspiring Adventure talk about his Knoydart adventure!
The challenge:
It all started with three men feeling the need to go and do something really challenging but also enjoyable in a canoe.
"Matt contacted the Grand Master Ray Goodwin for some inspiration and he kindly gave us some Scottish suggestions. The challenge he gave us was to get from Mallaig in Knoydart to Fort William using the sea, lochs, mountains, roads, and rivers and we only had five days to do it in. Ray thought would be technically difficult and tight with the time constraint, so with that in mind we had to go for it and decid…   [Read More]

Here at AS Water sports we like to support many different charity events and causes. Some big, some small, local and international.
This time it is a bit of both. Local people on an international scale.

The last weekend in August see's the UK's first Deep Water Solo (freeclimb) climbing competition come to the Quay in the heart of Exeter.
