For the first time this year, we are going to organise a Christmas Eve Paddle, free to all club members.
A flat water paddle suitable to all paddlers, we will have a range of craft available (Paddleboards, Canoe’s and Kayaks), which we will decorate with tinsel, Christmas lights and other seasonal merriments!
Some of us are planning to dress up as Santa, Elves and Reindeers. We’ll have some Santa hats available for all to wear on top of our helmets too!
Conditions will be expectedly very cold, both on and off the water, so it is imperative you are dressed appropriately for the environment. A proper wetsuit and CAG Jacket or dry suit with underlayers will be required.
Two routes are currently being considered. We’ll decide closer to the time, but please register on our event page!
Option 1: Meeting at Stanley Ferry Boat Marina and paddling up and down the canal
Option 2: Meet at Horbury Car Park (usual paddle spot) and paddle down the Calder to Ruddy Duck Pub, Wakefield. (Will require a shuttle run to be organised)
