The first of the summer evening club cruises will be held on Friday 6th July at 6:30pm, on the River Calder.

The plan is to meet and start at Healey WF5 8NE and paddle down to the Bombardier at Horbury Junction Industrial Estate. WF4 5ER

Bring money as we will end up in the beer garden of the Navigation pub.

This is a good, easy river for people who fancy trying moving water and ideal for practicing your ferry gliding.

If anyone requires equipment please let Andy Walker know before Thursday 5th July by email or text/mobile 07748 111819. Please ensure that you wear suitable clothing and footwear for kayaking in – wellies are bad, as are football boots and clogs. An old pair of trainers is good, wet suit shoes are on sale at the moment in Lidl and Aldi for a fiver a pair, these are ideal – barefoot or socks will not be permitted.

Spraydecks/Cags/BAs etc can be requested from Andy – let him know sizes (S/M/L etc).

It is IMPORTANT that people let us know if they plan to attend so we can ensure sufficient safety cover and also communicate any last minute changes due to water levels etc.

If you wish to come along, please confirm your attendance via email to one of these club members:
