 Leader: Julian Haines
 Trip level:
Improver / Intermediate

Interesting paddling with cliffs, headlands, sandy beaches and an island. The western end is the more exposed but Angle to Freshwater including St. Govan's Head looks like a solid intermediate trip. Freshwater to Tenby including Caldey Island should be a shorter and generally less exposed paddle for improvers. There's more sheltered water in Mildford Haven if we need it.

We should be past the worst of the winter weather, so we'll be camping at Dews Lake Farm (Cwtch Camping), about a mile from Lamphey, roughly mid-way between Pembroke and Freshwater, here. The advertised rate is £10 per person/night, but that's including hot showers. There's an indoor portakabin kitchen with fridge etc. too. It sounds pleasant and convenient. The advice from the owner is that there's no need to book in advance as they're likely to be quiet.

There's a pub in Lamphey which serves food and, for the most part, gets good reviews. There's apparently also a general store.

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).
