  3. BE COVID AWARE Club Lead Update 12 May: Trip is confirmed. Weather looks showery in the afternoon with light winds (Force 3 max). 1. Event co-ordinator Sten Sture 2. Trip Leader leader Sten Sure 3. Trip type: Sea 4. Level of ability : Intermediate 5. Date: Thursday 13-05-21 6. Venue : Walney Island 7. Meet location / time : Earnse Bay Car Park Walney Island SD 171/699 Meet 08:30 aim to be on the water by 09:00 we should be back at the cars by 16:00. 8. Meet to share lifts at: No lift share and we start and finish at Earnse Bay so not shuttling required. 9. Anything else: HW Barrow 13:16 BST 8.76m. 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: https://lakelandcanoeclub.wordpress.com/trips/ 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.
  4. Mark, I am interested in a future repeat of this session. (already signed on the intermediate to advanced paddle skills session for this date). Thanks
  5. I am happy to take my name off if the space is required for newer members.
  6. I will have my own independent shuttle arrangement. If this creates any issue with logistics for the rest of the group, thinking 3 in a car, please let me know and I will pull out. Cheers Sten

  12. I have pulled out. Thinking Mtb or Walking will be a better use of the weather.
  13. I have woken up with a cold as well this morning. Sorry but I am going to give paddling a miss this weekend.
  14. Sten and Emma are planning to go for a confidence building River Paddle. Weather forecast is for showers, if there is sufficient water the plan is to paddle the Rothay from Grasmere to Ambleside, (meeting at ambleside Rugby Club car park otherwise a park and play session on the Lune at Killington New Bridge. Meeting at 10:00. I will make a decision and post here and on the LCC River Kayaking WhatsApp group 08:00 Saturday morning. Little if any rain overnight. We will meet at Killington Bridge for a Park and Play on the Lune. With the option of running a short section at the end. Meet at 10:00

    White Water Paddling Trip

    I can do Saturday and / or Sunday. Plenty of rain forecast Saturday night and Sunday morning. So postponement probably makes sense, if people can do Sunday. If that is the case anybody for a quick Leven trip tomorrow?. Plenty of water in there.
