8. Meet to arrange shuttle: No Shuttle

9. Anything else: 

The loose plan is to go for a short paddle to warm up and loosen off, spend as long as we need doing dry stuff (towing etc). have a break then do some wet stuff. Bring a flask and a sandwich along with calm weather and sunshine.

Bring the kit you would normally take on with you (if you normally have kit on your deck then put it on there for this) also any gear you want to practice / experiment with. Tow lines, contact tow systems, paddle floats etc, bring a pump if you have one.

Getting wet is not mandatory, you can still come and learn through observation.

Please dress warm.

A dry suit is recommended. If you don't have a dry suit bring your normal paddling gear and if you want to have a practice do so just before we get off the water.

Sea kayaks only. 

Please read notes re trips here:


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.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip you are attending.

RSVP at least 2 days before the event
