Trip replacing Mike H's trip. Not the Irthing as it probably wont be up. I've yet to come up with a plan but I'll put my thinking cap on!
Despite some high rivers today (Friday) I'm guessing most things will have dropped significantly tomorrow if the forecasts of light, if any, rain are correct.
Therefore I propose to paddle the Lower Rawthey probably. We would meet at the put-in (Sedbergh New Bridge large layby, on A684 the road to Hawes).
Meet at 10.00am. I will post in the morning by 8.15am to confirm or alter as appropriate.
Saturday morning: more rain than I thought overnight in catchment. I'm guessing the 1.77m at 04.30 is a peak reading, but who knows??
Meet as above but we might do the main section of the Rawthey if it's not too high and people wish to.
1.Peer River Trip
3. Saturday 1st February
4. Venue to decide nearer the time - dependent on water levels etc. Check water levels the night before.
5. Trips may be cancelled or rearranged at short notice depending upon weather, and the preferences of those paddling.
6. To avoid a wasted journey, please ensure the trip coordinator knows you plan to attend, and has your mobile number.
7. Coordinator Rachel Powell (Rachel T).
I am very happy to co-ordinate this trip, choose a river, set up put ins and take outs, but I will not be the leader.
It is very likely that there will be other very competent paddlers on trip, many have more experience than myself.
Just to emphasise this is not a "formal LCC trip".
This is a group of mates heading out for a paddle and some fun. If you want to join us you are most welcome.
