    Event details
    PEER  trip
    Co-oridnator: Duncan Goulder (07730411538)
    1. Trip type:  Sea - 2 day coastal trip (24km & 15km) with overnight camp & shuttles.
    2. Level of ability : Intermediate
    3. Date: Sat 3rd Oct - Sun 4th Oct
    4. Venue : Flamborough -> Filey / Filey -> Scarbourgh
    5. Meet location / time : The plan is to meet at a local campsite (to be arranged) on Friday evening & discuss/impliment shuttle arrangements to allow us to be on the water at Flamborough South Landing around 0800 on Saturday. This will allow us to round the headland during the first hour of the north going stream & hopefully not be hindered by an eddy that may form beyond it.
    6. Meet to share lifts at: no lift share due to Covid.
    7. Anything else: 
    Some parts of this trip will involve exposed sections of coastline with some tidal movement and no escape routes. Where landing is possible there is a chance of needing to come through surf.
    I expect the format to be 2x day trips covering a continuous linear distance facilitated by shuttles. The overnight stay will be at a local campsite as I'm not familiar with this section of coastline & don't know how feisable a wildcamp would be. The plus side of that is we'll probably be paddling lightly loaded boats which may allow the opportunity to play in the surf & enjoy some rockhopping en-route as & where conditions are suitable.
    Day 1: Flamborough to Filey (24km). Spring tide with a max rate of 2-3kn at the headland.
    Day 2: Filey to Scarborough (15km). A more civilised start is possible today. Max rate 2kn at Filey Brigg.
    Please send me a whatsapp (07730411538) once you've RSVP'd so that I can communicate with you all as a group to confirm or adjust arrangements.

    Please read notes re trips here: https://lakelandcanoeclub.wordpress.com/trips/
    Make sure you've read the club's (and British Canoeing) guidance regarding kayaking during lockdown. 
    Note: this is a peer trip.  I'm happy to arrange and co-ordinate, but I will most likely not be the most experienced kayaker on the water.  Make sure you are fully self sufficient.

    Be covid aware
    Official trip
    The final session, let's take a moment...
    By now we should all be well enough aquatinted with the bow of our boats to never have to gaze longingly into it again. Our impressions of the Duracell bunny will be purely for humour rather than defacto.
    To make super sure though, session 4 will be a consolidation of what we've learned over the last 3 weeks. Challenges will be offered for the bold but just a cool river trip for the content.
    Hopefully all attendees have enjoyed the course and look forward to paddling in the future.
    Sessions will be limited to 6 paddlers  because of Covid restrictions but don't be disheartened if the R.S.V.P limit has been reached. Send us a message on 07927199545 and with enough interest we will be able to assign additional coaches to take another group or 2.
    Equipment is available for hire if required. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch.
