8. Anything else : Sea kayaks only. 

We have to carry kayaks down the beach so wheels might be useful.

Should be lots of bird life along St Bees Head cliffs

Local HW is at 09.44 We will have a small tidal assistance in both directions, hence the timing for the trip.

We will travel 8km north to just around North Head where we will take lunch. After lunch we will return maybe stopping at St Bees for ice-cream

Please bring appropriate kit.  Some rain is forecast so cags essential. You'll need lunch and a drink, hat and sunscreen.  Make sure you've read the club's (and British Canoeing) guidance regarding kayaking during lockdown.  


Guests by arrangement with organiser only. LCC members have priority

Please RSVP on the calendar by Tuesday evening.  

Check here on Thursday  morning first thing to ensure it's still running, before travelling.
