The first club trip of the summer season is an easy and gentle paddle on the Upper Hamble on Sunday 30th April meeting 13:45, on water 14:15 off water by
This trip is suitable for all boat types and all grades of paddler and is on a sheltered and very scenic stretch of river with good wildlife.
We will meet at the Horse and Jockey pub in Curbridge. Come off M27 at junction 7, Botley, drive through Botley village, turn right onto A3051 direction Curbridge and the pub is about 1 mile on the left. Please use the hard stand parking at the back of the main pub car park if possible.
The pub is kayaker friendly and does good food for those interested. I wiil be there around 12:45 for lunch and could have my arm twisted for a quick slurp after the paddle.
If anyone wishes to use club equipment please let me know before Sat 29th Apr and anyone requiring transport or equipment carrying please let me know in good time and i will try to assist.
I would be interested in coming along if someone is willing to pick me and my kayak up en route. Thanks
At the moment my roof bars will be full as i’m taking boats for 2 other people however should someone drop out or another member able to carry boats join i will let you know. I will post further details Thursday week when i have a clearer idea of numbers and roof bar space.
I spoke to Sheila on Friday and she is hoping to go on Sunday on the Hamble paddle and would be happy to take you and your boat so can you please tie up with her to arrange. If you require any club equipment can you let me know by Friday evening (i can’t take a boat as my roof is already full however your split boat will be ideal for the trip, i will be taking a short boat for myself.)
Hope to see you on Sunday.
The club is a lot of fun.
