Hi all,
Anybody know what the flow is like between Ree and Roosky??

On Monday, the flow at Athlone just above the weir was 4-4.5 knots based on the fact I was only able to do 2-3 knots upstream and my top speed is about 7 knots. It was pretty hair raising turning back upstream, side-on to the current!

Thanks Doug,
That tallies with info from Roosky and Lanesborough.
Think I'll hold off for another week. Not sure I want to be running at top revs for eight hours.
