I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip for 5 paddlers and more if I have another leader. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for one another’s safety on the water.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip – plenty of food and drink to share.

RSVP at least 2 days before the event.

Guests welcome after signing up on the LCC website – x3 LCC trips – contact organiser or come with a member:  Membership | Lakeland Canoe Club (wordpress.com)

Just a HELMET reminder for us all please.

the middle Derwent is a gentle river, with occasional trees across the channel and gravel banks, so we need to be vigilant and equipped with a helmet.

looking forward to the day.

Mike and Robin


PS:  Chris P - will check the numbers for you - Mike
