 Leader: James Forward (Julian Haines)
 Trip level:
Improver and Intermediate

Even in December, South Devon provides lots of possibilities to get paddling more or less whatever the weather. We'll be based at Slapton, a short drive from Hope Cove, Salcombe, Hallsands, Bigbury/Bantham and Dartmouth, all of which offer a variety of paddling depending on conditions.

Hope Cove has a reasonably sheltered harbour launch and offers rockhopping towards Thurlestone / Bigbury and exposed cliffs and headlands in the other direction. In some conditions there's easy beach surfing to be had at Hope Cove and usually somewhat bigger surf at Bigbury / Bantham. Depending on wind direction and strength, the Salcombe area or east coast (Hallsands / Start Point) are also interesting alternatives.

We now have accomodation arranged in the FSC Start Bay Centre at Slapton, which we're sharing with the white water and river paddlers of the club too. You must register here for this trip, but book the accomodation through the separate event listing:

Club Weekend Accomodation, Slapton

About a 2.5 hour drive from Bath.

You must satisfy yourself that this trip is suitable for you, that you are sufficiently experienced, able and willing to paddle at the advertised level. For detailed guidance, see trip categoristion. If in doubt, seek guidance from the advertised leader before registering.

You must register if you intend to come. Places are restricted in an effort to maintain an acceptable experience ratio amongst participants. If it's full, contact the trip leader to see whether any more places can be made available.

If you change your mind, that's okay! But please contact the trips officer as soon as you know so that someone else can register in your place.

You must bring suitable equipment or make arrangements for someone to bring it for you (eg. kayak). See what to bring.

You are advised to book a club boat, if you need one, by contacting the quartermaster(s).
