Please read notes re river trips: 






I am happy to co-ordinate the trip and organise leaders for the session. However, as we will be a team and 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. Note: Dry suits only please - 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.

Club members only. No guests, sorry.
