We carry (and store in watertight bags) spare clothes towels etc. With prior arrangement, I can store picnic stuff, more dry stuff etc, near Eichholz so that it is available when we land. We finish with a grill/picnic, all members are welcome, food and costs to be shared. To find us, look for a flag.

I've changed my maybe to yes - it's still a bit tentative as my weather app says it's going to be a stormy day.... hope not.

The Aare is very high, and no boats are able to use it at the moment. We will see how it is later in the week. Alternative date is Sunday 31 August. Note the Augut BBQ on the Aare near Belp on Sunday 17th August, register on
