Sunday 9th October Paddle

This Sunday 9th October we are looking at organising a beginner’s river trip. The exact location is yet to be confirmed depending on water levels, possible options are the River Ure at Ripon or River Tees at Barnard Castle.

This trip will be suitable for most, but please note this trip will not be run by Club Coaches, but will be run by suitably competent people to run this level of river and experience of leading trips on this level / type of water.

There is the chance that we may be able to take a small number of club boats if people require these, you will need to arrange to meet us at a suitable time to select a boat and appropriate paddling kit and paddle.  You will need to transport the kit and paddle.

For full day river trips (Sunday trips), you should bring along some food in a watertight container, as well as either a hot drink in a thermos flask or water/juice in a plastic bottle. These can be stored in the back of your boat.

If you need to take any medication with you on the river, then ideally this should be attached to you too. A dry bag will fit items like inhalers or pills nicely.  Any larger items will need to go in a waterproof bag/box in your boat. You may wish to give your medication to your trip leader to look after, and remember,  your towel and a change clothes to change into afterwards!

If you are bringing your own boat please ensure it is buoyancy/air bags installed.
