Spring Midweek - Improver / Intermediate WW Trip - No White Knuckle Rides - We'll Find a Trip that Suits the Group!

Event details


The idea will be to have some safe fun! If I haven't paddled with you before I will contact you personally so we can find the best river 'fit' for the team. An opportunity perhaps to learn / consolidate skills and perhaps do some leadership shadowing if you wish. I'm happy for more experienced paddlers to come along, but please give Improver / Intermediates the opportunity to RSVP first. We will set up the customary WhatsApp group before the day.  

1. Event co-ordinator & Leader - Pete Riley

2. Trip type: River grade 2 (3)

3. Level of ability:  Competent grade 2 or better

4. Date: Mon Feb 21st

5. Venue & Meet & Lift Sharing Locations: TBC - depends on water & group (to be determined 0800hrs at the latest on the day of paddling).

6. Anything else:

  • 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.  
  • WW kayaks only.
  • Suitable for competent grade 3 paddlers or better.
  • RSVP 6, unless another river leader joins trip. RSVP will be available from 11th Feb.

Please read notes re river trips here: Whitewater Safety , which gives useful information on: Important KitRiver SignalsWhitewater Safety Skills Helmets

Ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip and be familiar with the accepted river signals as above.
