Return the cars to the pay and display carpark (as they may get flooded if left on beach). Parking costs £5.50 for the day.  http://streetmap.co.uk/map?X=308496&Y=496459&A=Y&Z=115.

Aim to be on the beach ready to go for 10:15

8. No shuttle but we will have to move the cars to car park from beach (about 500 meters)

9. Anything else: 

The aim is to have a sociable paddle with a picnic - don't forget your butties. We should see some wintering birds. I’ll bring some Ravenglass Seaquest maps for information. 

This trip will be about 4 hours with tidal assistance for most of the way.

This trip is weather dependant so if the forecast is unfavourable (greater than 20mph gusts)  the trip  may be rescheduled. I will post the decision on here the night before at latest.


On Tuesday 21st February:
Tide height is high at about about 9.8m
Aim to be on the water at 10:15 (about 2 hours before high tide - HW Barrow is about 12.06 BST))
We will arrive back at Ravenglass before 14:30 (little water and lots of mud 2 hours after high tide)
Sea kayaks / Touring Kayaks.

We are 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.

 Seaquest map, for information. 

We will probably go south in to the Esk, below Muncaster Castle, by Waberthwaite and then as far up the river past check point 21 at the A595 bridge, as the water allows.  As the tide turns so will we.  We will return back to Ravenglass and hopefully then have time to explore the Mite estuary.
