Another packrafting trip on the river Leie: 17 km back and forth from the public jetty in Sint-Martens-Latem to the “Drie Leien”, Drongen, Afsnee and Sint-Denijs-Westrem. In all about 4:30 hours of paddling, including a lunch break.
I must say that 17 km downstream and upstream on the river Leie is about as physically strenuous as 32 km on the Ardèche. Technically it is evidently a piece of cake. Only excitement are the waves caused by pleasure yachts passing by at close distance, especially on a Sunday afternoon.
