Lakeland Canoe Club

As I missed out on the last practice session and I want to do some before my next trip so here we go again.
An Opportunity to meet up on the water and explore sea kayak assisted and self rescues. We could also look at some towing options if people are interested
1. Event co-ordinator Sten Sture
2. Trip Leader leader Sten Sture
3. Trip type: Sea kayak rescue training (well lake really)
4. Level of ability : All
5. Date: Friday 6th May
6. Venue : Brown Howe Coniston Water
7. Meet location / time : Meet at laybys just north of Brown Howe http://streetmap.co.uk/map?X=329102&Y=491282&A=Y&Z=120 with a fall back option of using the pay and display carpark 09:30 
8. Meet to arrange shuttle: No Shuttle
9. Anything else: 
Aim to be on the water foe 10:00
The loose plan is to go for a short paddle to warm up and loosen off, spend as long as we need doing dry stuff (towing etc). have a break then do some wet stuff. Bring a flask and a sandwich along with calm weather and sunshine.
Bring any gear you want to practice / experiment with. Tow lines, contact tow systems, paddle floats etc, bring a pump if you have one.
Getting wet is not mandatory, you can still come and learn through observation.
Please dress warm.
A dry suit is recommended. If you don't have a dry suit bring your normal paddling gear and if you want to have a practice do so just before we get off the water.
Sea kayaks only.

OS Grid Ref SD 2044 7752
7. Meet location / timings: meet at the gated end of Askam Pier at 10am with a view to being on the water by 10.45. The original intention had been to meet at the Duddon Road car park but after doing the trip as a recce last week, the channel currently runs right next to the south side of the pier, so there seems to be little point in long carries over the sand from Duddon Road if at all avoidable. A trolley is still a good idea because parking is limited at the head of the pier and we will need to park on the nearby estate roads (no parking restrictions but please park considerately!) and trolley the boats to the water. 
8. Meet to share lifts at: none needed
9. Anything else:  
Tide height is 9.6m with HW Barrow at 1300. The trip is 20km out and back, so with a stop for lunch (please bring your own!) we should be back in Askam by 1500
I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip together with Mike and Tom. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for one another’s safety on the water.
Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip. 
RSVP at least 2 days before the event. No guests.
