8. Anything else : Please bring warm kit.  there will be plenty of stops  so bring food and a drink. 

Make sure you've read the club's (and British Canoeing) guidance regarding kayaking during lockdown. 

Note: this is a peer trip I'm happy to arrange and co-ordinate, but I will most likely not be the most experienced kayaker on the water.  Make sure you are fully self sufficient.

Please RSVP on the calendar by 6pm Sat evening.  Check on Sunday morning first thing to ensure it's still running before travelling.
