LCC AGM Monday 11th December
Events happening today
10 November 2023 12 November 2023This event has been cancelled due to injury. I'll reschedule once I've recovered sufficiently!
Sea kayak day trips around North Wales / Anglesey. The type of trips will be tailored to the preferences of those attending where possible, however attendees should have a skillset matching Lakeland Canoe Club's definition below.
Please feel free to have a chat with one of the trip leaders if you want to discuss before signing up.
We will base ourselves at Anglesey Outdoors which will allow us indoor space for trip planning in the evenings. This will allow us to plan trips to suit the team's ideas of what constitutes an enjoyable day on the water, which we acknowledge is different for everybody. A final decision will be made each morning in response to the weather conditions.
Schedule: Arrive Anglesey Outdoors Friday morning 10th November. Trip planning chat in the bar & then off to chosen location
Paddle Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Drive home Sunday afternoon / evening

I am happy to coordinate and lead / co-lead this trip. However, as we will be a team we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.
Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip. https://lakelandcanoeclub.wordpress.com/trips/sea-kayak-safety-kit/

12 November 2023 10:00 AM 12:00 PMFollowing on from his informative camp cooking evening for the club earlier in the year, Mike Tracey from Cumbrian Kayaking is hosting a workshop to make your own nylon coated steel wire security cable/leash for your kayak/canoe to fit your roof bars.
These are bespoke, but by their nature will be transferable to other roof bars (e.g. for car sharing). He has a range of designs to suit any boat. You would just then need a padlock to secure the cable in place.
Because this is a bespoke session, you will need to take your boat, ideally on your car.
There are three dates for this workshop, Sunday 12th Nov, Sunday 26th Nov and Sunday 10th Dec (you only need to book onto one of them),
The workshop will be held at Mike's showroom and storage facilities at the i centre in Ingleton, the old middle school.
Address: i centre, Back Gate, Ingleton, Carnforth LA6 3BT
Cost £25 for a standard size cable, £35 if an extra long one is required. Pay on the day.
