Event details

Not Official LCC Event

Social Paddle down the River Kent 

Staveley to Burneside - I thought it might be fun to continue the journey down the Kent from where we left off last time .

We have the option of running Cowan Bridge or the portage is very easy.

There are some weirs, usually most are OK but a couple are definite portages.

Event /09etails: River trip for Improver/Intermediates - suitable for all

As a m/inimum you must be a competent flat water paddler and be a happy swimmer in event of capsize.

Aimed at anyone who :

- can paddle rivers but wants to refresh / improve basic skills

- learn basic skills.

Must have your own kit including especially a River Buoyancy Aid and Helmet
    E-mail me or leave a message if you are struggling for river kit - I have some spares - could even stretch to a boat and paddle.

1. Grade 2/3 (4) river section - 

2. Saturday 10th February

3. Meet 10.00 a.m. A Car Park in Burneside adjacent to the river, by some garages and behind the Spar .


4. Other notes - under 18 welcome but by prior arrangement - please email trip leader

5. Check water levels / sort out lifts the night before

6. Trip leader Brain Clough

Dare I say it - looks like rain

If that is the case - then maybe possible to do something other than the normal rivers that we usually do


Will update on here tomorrow morning after the usual 8:30 ring around.

Any suggestions would be welcome in comments

Going for a look at the Roeburn - meet in Wray at the bridge over the river at 10:30
