Coordinator Rob Hitchmough 07729 809613 I am very happy to co-ordinate this trip, choose a river, set up put ins and take outs, but I will not be the leader. It is very likely that there will be other very competent paddlers on trip, many have more experience than myself. Just to emphasise this is not a "formal LCC trip". This is a group of mates heading out for a paddle and some fun. If you want to join us you are most welcome. Please read notes re river trips here: https://lakelandcanoeclub.wordpress.com/trips/ Please make sure you've read the club's (and British Canoeing) guidance regarding kayaking and Covid-19.
