Lower River Lune, Open Canoe

Event details

THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED DUE TO STRONG WINDS FROM THE NEXT NAMED STORM. FORCE 6 TO 9 WHEN WE WOULD BE PADDLING. I will try to re-arrange in  calmer weather appropriate to open canoes.

Open Canoe Trip, hopefully on the Lune south of Kirkby Lonsdale

1 Event organiser: Sue Simpson

2 Leaders: Sue & Richard Simpson

3 Trip type: Moving water grade 1/2 Open Canoe

4 Ability: Must have moving water experience in open canoe.

5 Date: Thursday 17th February

6 Venue: Lune, Kirkby Lonsdale to Loyne Bridge

7 Meet: Devil's Bridge (Toilets side) 9.30 to do shuttle.

8 Anything else

This is a straightforward trip so long as the water is not high nor a strong wind from the south. Paddlers must be able to manoeuvre quickly, the usual overhanging trees can be a hazard. If conditions are unfavourable  we may rearrange or cancel. I will post an update by 1800hrs on Wednesday 16th Feb.

Recommended Comments

I did this on Friday at 0.81 @Caton, few rocks along the way. The channel where you can go right around the Wenning confluence area is just about doable but there is a tree down in it, so with canoe probably best to stay to the main river. 

Hope you all enjoy
