Cancelled Trip - Leven Estuary

LCC Sea Kayak Trips

Event details


The Third of the Four Estuaries and an Island Series.

Leven Estuary

Thursday Night - Trip Cancelled - too Windy - Cancel now and we can all make alternative plans



Sunday 9th February

High tide of 9.4m at 11:06 in Liverpool

We have 2 hours either side of high water, just time to paddle up the Leven Estuary have a spot of lunch and paddle back before all the water goes out

Suggest aiming for 08:30 in the car park at Canal Foot, Dry Suit on and ready to go


The channel runs quite close to here so it should be an easier put on than Wadhead Scar

A stretch of coastline with available landings every one to two miles or one hour paddling, including areas where it is not easy to land. Crossings not exceeding two nautical miles. Up to 2 knots of tide (but not involving tide races or overfalls). Winds not exceeding Beaufort force 4 . Launching and landing through surf (up to 1 metre, trough to crest height).

The trip is within Moderate Water remit set by British Canoeing. Except there will be a fast moving  water as we pass under the railway viaduct.

It is winter time, the weather is the unpredictable part of the trip.
If the weather is just too bad I may have to postpone the trip for a couple of weeks.
If the trip does go ahead – dress for the cold.
Dry suits only.
I would advise wrapping up warm, taking gloves (pogies could be a good alternative), a warm hat and a warm coat to wear during lunch.

A spot of lunch should include a warm drink and some comforting, energy providing food.

RSVP at least 2 days before the event

Guests by arrangement with organiser, prior to trip only.
