Sorry yes you did and there it is! I don't have a very good track record right now for "attention to detail"

I did find his personal email on the domain registration though. If I don't get an answer on that I'll try the one at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for your help.

Triangles are campsites!

The first letter/number is the size (G = Group, 4 = 4 tents spaces), the second letter is the quality rating (A = fantastic, D = you might not want to camp there).

Like all ratings they are quite subjective and also subject to season variations. A site that rates a GB in mid-summer might be a beach site that is mostly under water in the Spring.

It's a good system as a general guide but it's only a general guide not an absolute.

Another code you will encounter is "EV" (eau vive) which indicates swifts or stretches of fast current.

OK thanks - that was my intuition but I looked everywhere and could not find a definition. And I had no idea what the numbers and letters meant.

What is a "planiol" within the context of a set of rapids?

R3 - 50m
planiol - 100m
R1-R2 - 200m
planiol - 50m
R1 - 200m

Google translate gives me the same word

That's not a common marking, I'd assume it describes the short distance between the three "drops" in that set, indicating calm water or pool.
