This trip is very weather dependant if the weather is unsuitable I may cancel or amend the plan to do a shorter more sheltered option. I will post any changes here by 18:00 the evening before.

The tide recedes a long way at Earnse Bay a trolley will be useful if you have one.

We will need to get to a couple of places within a time table to get around the island and make best use of the tide.

I have allowed plenty of time to do this (weather permitting). Those who have paddled with me will know that I am not out to break any records so hopefully the pace will be relaxed. There will be at least two "picnic" stops so bring sandwiches and a flask or stove to make a brew.

Please read notes re river trips here:


I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip you are attending.

RSVP at least 2 days before the event

Guests by arrangement with organiser, prior to trip only.
