Update: This trip is now fully booked.
The next club trip is the River Lune on 28th Dec.
Meet at 9:00am at Devils Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale. This river trip is not suitable for beginner paddlers.
Here is a brief list of equipment that each individual will need to carry on the River Lune and similar levels of River. This is not just for group safety but for the safety of the individual;
- Throwline and Knife
- Warm drink in flask
- Dry Bag containing the following:-
- Warm/Dry gloves hat.
- Hand warmers (personal option)
- Emergency food, mars bars or similar
- Survival bag.
- Optional small personal first aid kit
- Any personal medication that maybe required, clearly marked.
The shuttle on the Lune is in the region of 45mins and it can be bitterly cold for those waiting at the put in, so you need to be prepared for a wait and to keep yourself warm.
As you paddle rivers like this there will still be people leading the rivers and looking out for the groups safety but the individual has to start taking more responsibility for their own safety and preparation of their equipment.
