The long-awaited Whitewater trips!
The proposed dates are as follows;
Saturday 26th October
Saturday 23rd November
Saturday 14th December
Saturday 18th January 2020
As river levels are constantly changing, we will be making the decisions on which rivers to run nearer the time.
If you are interested in participating in any of these trips, please list your interest in the comments section below.
Please note that you will need to bring appropriate whitewater kit (safety wise and warmth wise), including the most important bit – Food and Drink!
These trips will be aimed at catering for all abilities* whether you’re just starting out and you’ve got the whitewater bug, or you’re a competent whitewater paddler looking to push yourself, they’ll be something for everyone!
Hope to see you on the water.
*All abilities means minimum 2* standard, but might be new to white water.
The expected skill level of minimum 2* standard can be found at BCU 2* training notes So anyone who has not undertaken a 2* course needs to be at this level of capability for closed cockpit kayak. Looking forward to meeting you all this winter 🙂
Look forward to paddling with you lot this winter. Depending on river choice, we’re hoping that Lisa and/or Zoe could join us this year. Zoe went on a week long kids course at CIWW this summer having done a fair bit of grade 2 in France in the May half term, and can just about roll in the pool, but is only 10, so I’m not sure she’s up to the loop yet!
