    Seven of us ran the Rothay from Grasmere down to Ambleside, with a further three paddlers keen enough to do the Lune down to Killington as well.

    Mid-week Whitewater

    until
    Note that this is a peer-led trip and not an official LCC event. There will be no formal leadership or coaching, just paddlers enjoying the water and looking out for each other. If you are not clear about this, please speak to the Midweek trip co-ordinator, Phil Clayton, on 0785 0202405. How to get involved in Midweek paddling; 1 Let the trip co-ordinator know you are interested, giving your email address and mobile phone number 2 Ensure you have WhatsApp on your phone*! 3 On the morning of the trip, there will be a WhatsApp call to agree which river, and a meeting point. The choice of river will depend upon water levels, and also the skills of those wanting to paddle on that day, but typically it will be a grade 2/3 River in the North West. 4 Depending upon river levels, additional trips may run on other days of the week; sadly we can’t control when or where the rain falls. These short notice trips are also communicated via WhatsApp. N.B. #1 You are welcome to come on some, all or none of the trips offered, and need to make your own decision on whether to paddle on a given day. N.B.#2 *If you can’t get WhatsApp, for example because you don’t use a Smartphone, we will contact you by text, where possible

    Due to lack of river water, we went sea-kayaking instead; Roa Island to Greenodd.
