As you can see from the pictures below the trip lived up to its name with the temperature below freezing for most of the day. Some 17ish paddlers were on the water from Aboyne to Potarch in 6 kayaks and 6 canoes.
Dont ask how many Aboyne Canoe Club paddlers can fit in a corsa.
Stops were enjoyed with jelly babies, christmas cake and other goodies.
Maria has been recorded as the first swim of the year with an unfortunate incident with an eddy line and a rather chilly swim as a result.
The trip was rounded off with a few paddlers floating down the rapid at Potarch.
