This trip is aimed to suit those with kayaking skills of 3* level, or approaching that: a roll is not necessary. You should be prepared to paddle in moderate wind (F3, maybe gusting F4) and waves ( up to 1.25 m). If you are unsure please contact the trip leader to discuss.
Final destination will depend on the forecast nearer the time (typically the Weds or Thurs evening before the trip).
However I am hoping to launch from Hartland Quay in North Devon, if the swell and winds allow. The coast is mainly rocks and cliffs with swell straight from the atlantic, so some experience and competence needed, along with a kind weather forecast. If the weather isn't suitable we will look to go elsewhere within a days drive there and back 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).
