    Cancelled -Demo day

    This event will be cancelled. Ensure you're familiar and compliant with current Covid restrictions. New year new kayak! Border Kayaks have kindly organised the use of Wavesports' demo fleet. This includes the Phoenix, their premier creek boat, a full range of Diesels, which are general purpose river runners, a full range of Project X playboats and a selection of Fuse river play. The day will be held at the Leven. No doubt Anthony will wow you all with some magic tricks on the brick chute wave and you'll get the opportunity to try it yourself in some really cool boats. Rsvp set to 18. With enough interest groups of 6 will be given a time slot. 🦖 Manage Event

  3. Cancelled due to tier 4 Covid restrictions Please ensure all participants are aware and complying with current CoVID 19 regulations. The session will cover rescuing swimmers and recovering equipment from the comfort of your own boat, how you can prepare your boat to make recovering it a 1000x easier and working as a team to achieve your aim. After discussion and demonstration participants will be given the opportunity to explore and develop rescue skills and tactics under support. Swimmer and chase kit will be provided. No prior experience is required although participants MUST be confident and skilful enough to read and run grade 2/3 white water. Location TBC Killington gorge or similar. A Dave Gray production 🦖
  4. sorry have to reschedule until the 20th. hope that works for you all
  5. Hi Cat, yea that's no problem. I believe its the Machno for you to take as the other kit is being borrowed tomorrow. Also if you could let John Speakman know when ever you collect/reserve kit. makes it a bit easier to keep track of things.
  6. Hi Cat. You would be a 7.6 for a mamba and would fit a small or a med burn but would likely be better in a med. The club has some med burn 2s you can try for size if you like. Alternatively I would suggest chatting to the guys at https://www.roho.co.uk. They’re excellent to deal with and frighteningly knowledgable about all things water! I believe they do a discount for LCC members as well.
  7. No problem Cat happy to have you back! I’ll make sure there’s a boat for you.
  8. Rob no worries got just the boat for you 😃. the club likes a voluntary donation of £10 for kit hire if you are so inclined
  9. Tom R. South lakes Kendal/Kirkby Lonsdale area. we'll have to wait and see what the rains doing. I’ll update with something more Definitive 3 or 4 days before the date.
  10. Be covid aware Official trip The final session, let's take a moment... By now we should all be well enough aquatinted with the bow of our boats to never have to gaze longingly into it again. Our impressions of the Duracell bunny will be purely for humour rather than defacto. To make super sure though, session 4 will be a consolidation of what we've learned over the last 3 weeks. Challenges will be offered for the bold but just a cool river trip for the content. Hopefully all attendees have enjoyed the course and look forward to paddling in the future. Sessions will be limited to 6 paddlers because of Covid restrictions but don't be disheartened if the R.S.V.P limit has been reached. Send us a message on 07927199545 and with enough interest we will be able to assign additional coaches to take another group or 2. Equipment is available for hire if required. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch.
  11. Be covid aware Official trip Its all about the edge! Session 3 will cover using river features to help us get where we need to go. We'll examine the tactics employed to manage our groups safely and to hit those swish looking lines ( also what a line is ). Sessions will be limited to 6 paddlers because of Covid restrictions but don't be disheartened if the R.S.V.P limit has been reached.

    White Water Safety & Rescue Day part 1 An essential tool to have in your river paddling kit, is an increased awareness of safety issues. If you paddle rivers at any level of ability, it is HIGHLY recommended that you should take part in this course. It should raise your awareness of what to do and when you do it, in the event of a capsize. It could save your life or that of someone you paddle with. mediate difference between losing kit or not. LOCATION. Devils bridge on the Lune LA6 2JR Time form 10:00 to 13:00. With the doom, gloom and gnarly spelling mistakes out of the way the session intends to run in two parts. Part 1 will run as a park and play providing the prerequisite skills for a scenario based adventure running an appropriate section. Additional dates can be provided with enough interest and if no one thinks it's rubbish. Part 1 will cover. Personal safety equipment and correct fitting. Group safety equipment with correct Inspection, storage and deployment techniques. Moving kit Bank to Bank. Moving/freeing kit mechanical advantage. Self rescue Swimming/supporting a swimmer. Swimming with a paddle Boat chasing. Turn up with normal river kit and any safety kit (throw lines etc) you may have. we'll leave swimming as close to the end as possible and participants MUST have a dry suit as it will likely be chilly. A flask is advisable otherwise there's a van atop the bridge which does coffees and the like. Any questions feel free to call 07927199545 (safeguard) otherwise look forward to swimming outside with you in January... Lunatics. location Devils bridge Lune
