Wilko Sized Trip Reports in 2000

This was a year with several highs and lows. I paddled a playboat for the first time and had some great runs with it. The only day I paddled my faithful old Diablo, I had the worst swim of my paddling career, getting hurt.

I got to paddle in several countries for the first time (Spain, Switzerland), and had a great week long trip to the U.S., about which I only wrote about one day on the Upper Yough.
