River Ivel Trip 14th October

We’re running a trip to the River Ivel in Bedfordshire on Sunday 14th October.  This gentle river trip is suitable for members who can paddle for about 3 hours and are happy to shoot small rapids.  As our last day trip before the water starts getting cold, we hope as many members as possible will be able to join us.

BOAT COLLECTION: Either Sunday 7th or Wednesday 10th October at the club session and don’t forget to take a helmet, buoyancy aid and spray deck if you need them

MEET:  10am at the put in (52.119921, -0.283445) – see map to River Ivel put-in.

TAKE OUT:  Layby on the A1 just before the gates for Tempsford Village Hall SG19 2AW – see map to River Ivel take-out.

FINISH:  About 3pm

Please bring lunch, drinks, and some spare layers in a dry bag in your boat in case you get wet.  We’re only able to take 10/11/12 year olds on this trip if accompanied by a responsible adult.

The Ivel is a primarily flat paddle with 3 or 4 very nice waves (depending on water levels) to play on and a 3m drop. Details about the River Ivel.  Ignore any directions on that document, please see the put-in map for more details (indicated by a RED square on the map)

Please let me know if you will be joining us and if you have any space in your car to transport a boat or person to the start.
