    Bring food drink etc but be prepared to consume it from the kayak as we won't be able to stop on the incoming tide.

    Please read notes re river trips here:
    I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.

             Paddling technique on moving water
             Moving water hazards

    Remember the club now has small, medium and large river kayaks and associated kit for members to use for a small consideration of £10 per day which goes towards secure storage.
