|2 Star / Beginners
This trip will be a gentle paddle within the confines of the harbour and therefore reasonably safe and ideal for those new to sea kayaking or wishing to get back on the water after a break. You will be expected to have attended basic introduction sessions to paddling. It is recommended that you attend some familiarisation to sea kayaking at the club.
The day's routine is to buddy with others to travel to Poole with kit. After a briefing launch and cross to Arne Bay and perhaps then venture across to the islands such as Brownsea. How far we paddle will depend on conditions and ability. Take a packed lunch and that will be eaten on a beach.
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).
