Grade 2(3) River Trip

Event details

 Share

I would like to arrange a fairly regular midweek feature within the calendar where a group of four, five including myself can run some rivers that fall within the remit of British Canoeing Moderate Water definitions

The sort of rivers I had in mind would not exceed Grade 2(3)

My intention is to   keep river choice at the bottom of the remit – Grade 2 rather than solid Grade 3

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.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip you are attending. We can discuss any questions about the kit required and /or alternatively…….

There is a link at the bottom of the page for Kit. There are other useful links, all of which are recommended reading.

Could I also draw your attention to …….

https://lakelandcanoeclub.wordpress.com/risk-assessments-for-river-trips/

Any river in flood or spate is considered to be out with the club remit due to the additional risk of rescuing as swimmer and the extra difficulties rescuing kit. Similarly any rapid or fall for which adequate safety can be not set is considered out with the club remit.

Attendees will be added to a WhatsApp group for the event. Please check WhatsApp and the calendar to confirm location, suitable river levels, and that the trip is running.

Guests by arrangement with organiser, prior to trip please.
