Paddlefest Contact
Nat for more information.

Spend a day at CIWW, no rafts, range of cumecs, boats to try, BBQ, music and more.
More details to follow from Nat but I'd stab at-
 
Meet at the club for a 08:30 departure (so if it's your first trip and you love to faff get there early! we'll unlock at about 7:45) and we should be back by 16:30/17:00 depending on fitness/enthusiasm/traffic levels.
 
Helpful if you can bring a car, preferable with roof rack. Most people can fit 2 or 3 boats on their car so we are limited by the number of spare roof rack spaces

Additionally it's the usual things to bring-
  • Warm (when wet) clothes to paddle in
  • Shoes to paddle in and walk back to the bottom of the rapids )
  • Boat - one that is fairly short would be good
  • Paddle
  • Spraydeck
  • Helmet
  • Buoyancy Aid
  • A hot drink and food - although there is a cafe
  • Water - not good to drink the river water if you are thirsty
  • A towel & £1 for the changing room lockers
  • Depending on conditions sunblock for uncovered bits and a jacket/warm clothes/shorts to get changed into post paddle
  • Change for bridge/entry see below-
 
Transport
Normally we share the cost of the fuel (it's between 55 and 65 miles depending on route and takes about 1:20), parking at CIWW is free but the entry is £12. £6 for the bridge.
