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.October 1, 2019 at 9:09 am #1044
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 🙂October 15, 2019 at 10:25 pm #1049steve_the_greekParticipant
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!October 19, 2019 at 11:54 am #1050boats145Participant
I would love to join you on the 26th Oct.

Depending on the plan I’d like to join you for Saturday, unfortunately due to life having gone into overdrive at the moment, (potential house move) i can’t confirm until the last minute.
I know levels change in a heartbeat on the Dart but levels last weekend were as close to perfect as you’re likely to get, we did Salmons leap to Staverton.

We’ll probably be paddling independently this weekend. Zoe doesn’t want to take a Duo down the loop, so we’re going to tackle the lower with some friends and Zoe in her own boat. We may try and sneak a run of the loop at the end of the day, so we might cross paths at some point!October 25, 2019 at 1:11 pm #1057

Well done to Peter, Sheila and Richard today. The dart was at a nice level lapping the ledge so the features were enjoyable, it was Peter’s first dart paddle. Was a bit cold on arrival and the car park at new bridge was bursting at the seams, but almost tee shirt weather with sunshine when we got off. Thanks to Jacob for organising and keeping an eye on everyone. Rich showed off his advanced rolling skills at the spin dryer with no swimmers all had a good day.
