Recreational Kayaking Update

Forthcoming Trips
We have two trips coming up in partnership with the Spelthorne Kayak & Canoe Club:

Saturday, 8 March 2014 – Ivel Trip, meet at 09:30 at the put in
This is open to all who can paddle 3-4 hours and would like an introduction to shooting small weirs or practice some moving water skills in a faster flowing environment.
Details will be sent out by this weekend, however, please remember the following:

  • Dress appropriately, it can get cold on the water after several hours
  • Helmets are required
  • Bring lunch, warm drinks and snacks
  • Boats and equipment must be arranged through the equipment officer or at the Sunday club session

Friday, 25 – 27 April 2014 – Symonds Yat Trip
Open to all 2 star and above, we will probably be paddling on the rapids on Friday afternoon, doing a “day” trip on the Saturday and then the rapids again on Sunday. This is the ideal environment for those wishing to progress onto moving water.
More details will be sent closer to the time, but we are thinking of camping weather permitting.

Lee Valley White Water Course
Club members generally paddle every Saturday, keep an eye on Facebook!

Sunday Recreational Sessions
Reminder, Sunday sessions run from 10:00-12:00, it would be nice if we could be launching as close to 10:00 as possible and make the most of our time on the water. If you need to use club equipment, please try and arrive earlier than 10:00 to get your equipment out of the recreational container – the club house and container are usually open from 09:45.
