Upcoming Trips


See below and join us for our first 2021 post lockdown trip now that Nomad’s are re-opened and paddling again. More trips to be confirmed.

We run a trip each month for our members’ enjoyment and to allow them to develop their skills on different water. The trips are free to members and are led by coaches and experienced paddlers, who specify the skill level needed for each trip.  Trips are usually on the second sunday or weekend of the month so keep this weekend free.

We want our trips to be open to as many members as possible, so if you’re not sure about the paddling skills required, ask a coach to tell you your paddling level and email the trip leader. The trip leader’s email address is on the sign up page.
Boats and equipment can be borrowed at a cost of £5 per day
from the equipment officer. The club doesn’t provide transport for trips, so please arrange your own boat transport and share lifts with other members on the sign up page. If you’re keen on trips and have a car it’s a good idea to get a roof rack – or find someone to  give you lifts!

Trips are coordinated by trips officer Matt Greenshields and for questions about individual trips please contact the relevant trip leader by email. Thank you to the trip leaders for giving their time for club members.

PLEASE SIGN UP FOR TRIPS A WEEK IN ADVANCE TO GIVE THE TRIP LEADERS TIME TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS – THANK YOU!
