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.
