    Arnside Bore

    BE COVID AWARE Surfing the Borewave hopefully, it has been very good recently - but it is fickle Social paddle into Morecambe Bay, meet the incoming tide and back maybe on the Bore Wave. We could start and finish from Arnside promenade or go for a trip up the estuary with a little bit of playing under the viaduct and up the river as far as we can get whilst still being able to get back !! 2. Thursday 27th May 3. Starting --- High Water of 9.7m at 12.20 (Liverpool!) so aim to be on the water and paddle from Arnside promenade at 08.20 4. Meet at Arnside promenade at 08.00 am http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=345440&y=478660&z=120&sv=345440,478660&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=636&ax=345440&ay=478660&lm=0 5. Trip co-ordinator: Brian Clough 6. Trip leader: Sten Sture River or sea kayaks. If intending to ride bore wave must have a solid first time roll. You can join us and just follow the bore wave if you don't wish to surf on it Not suitable for novices. Please make sure you've read the club's (and British Canoeing) guidance regarding kayaking and Covid-19. Please read notes re river trips here: https://lakelandcanoeclub.wordpress.com/trips/

  3. An update There were some extremely inconvenient road works just past Newby Bridge (if coming from Kendal) - long delays. They seemed to switch them on at 09:00 Talking to Anthony he suggested meeting at 09:30. The road works may of course be gone by then, but it would be better to play safe I can't make it on Saturday but I am sure you will have a good time
  4. 15/04/2021 An update There were some extremely inconvenient road works just past Newby Bridge (if coming from Kendal) - long delays. They seemed to switch them on at 09:00 Talking to Anthony he suggested meeting at 09:30 at the put in for the Leven . The road works may of course be gone by then, but it would be better to play safe https://www.streetmap.co.uk/map?x=336788&y=486445&z=115&sv=336788,486445&st=4&ar=Y,y&mapp=map&searchp=ids&dn=795&lm=0 I can't make it on Saturday but I am sure you will have a good time. The area of the Leven should be OK even with low water - it was OK on Thursday Brian 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. Anthony has the following boats in the demo fleet Wave Sport Diesel 60 Whiteout Wave Sport Diesel 70 Whiteout Wave Sport Diesel 80 Whiteout Wave Sport Fuse 35 (junior boat) Wave Sport Fuse 48 Wave Sport Fuse 56 Wave Sport Project X 48 Wave Sport Project X 56 Wave Sport Project X 64 Wave Sport Phoenix And if needed i can get hold of the Wave sport Ethos 9 & 10 Covid regs etc mean that groups are limited to six, so including Anthony five places are available for each session. It will depend on numbers but we thought we could run two session each day, one on Thursday and more on Saturday.

  7. Difficult call because there has been some rain - but probably not enough?? Things may change during the day - all depending on the rain I am going to cancel the trip but suggest people can contact each other via whats app if they want to paddle one of the 'always up' rivers or if more rain falls.
