Park and Practice on Flat Water

Event details

Park and Practice

River Leven Below the Slalom Course

Parking in layby on the Northside of the carriageway, just before the bridge when travelling from Barrow to Kendal.

When travelling form Kendal, I usually turn round at the Backbarrow junction and go back to the layback.

It is a very busy, fast road - please be careful

Open to all levels of ability for these  paddling sessions

Practice in play boats, practice in river boats, try rolling, anything you want

No direct coaching but I would envisage everybody working together and learning from each other.

6. Venue: River Leven Below of the Slalom Course

7. Meet:  Meet at 18:00

8. Anything else:

Park and play session and the water is very accessible and so people could dip in and dip out as they wish, I will be there before 18:00, people could arrive s0oner or later and choose when they wish to leave. Trying to keep it very informal.

I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the session. However, as a group, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.

Park and Practice in warmish water so wear what you feel is appropriate.

PFD and Kayak specific helmets still required

I will try and put these sessions on a regular basis but welcome feedback on frequency, location and time.
