Please read notes regarding river 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. We can discuss any questions about the kit required and/or alternatively…….


There is a link at the bottom of the page for Kit. There are other useful links, all of which are recommended reading.

Could I emphasize ......

Dry suits only - in summer it might be possible to manage without a dry suit, but in winter an early dip has more severe consequences for the individual concerned and the rest of the group.

Kayak specific helmets with protection over temples and ears must be worn on theses trips. Something like a Sweet Rocker as oppose to a Sweet Strutter - other brands are available

Details can be found here…….


The club does have a number of kayak specific helmets available for hire

Could I also draw your attention to …….
