Adventure Stories – Avon Descent 2009

Footscray Member Takes on the Avon Descent

The Avon Descent was held this weekend 1st and 2nd of August over the Avon and Swan Rivers in Perth, WA. For those unfamiliar, the Avon Descent is a two-day time trial over 134 km, and covers white water, flatwater and everything in between.

FCC member Andrew Connolly competed this year and has written up an excellent blog on his journey.

Day 1’s adventures (including a very personal encounter with a tea-tree or two) is here.

Day 2 – Rapids! is here.

Congratulations on completing this gruelling event Andrew!
