Bouligans River Rescue

Two experienced kayakers were flipped in the Radyr weir washing machine today.

Luckily two of the Bouligans petanque team were on the scene and stepped in for a rescue.

“Joe saw him struggling, I thought he was fine then he grabbed the fallen tree and we thought we had best check”

“Bravery doesn’t cover it! Daz was knee deep at one point, with a big long stick”

Both kayakers were reported afterwards as “recovering from their ordeal” in the ambulance

Whilst being praised for their quick actions, Joe and Daz were quick to say that anyone passing would have done the same and they made light of their end-of-year rescue.

“I’m just lobbing my cape in the tumble dryer Daz, don’t forget to dry yours too”
