This week’s (5th Jan) white water trip is still a work in progress, we'll aim for something G3ish and decide based on river levels and group's ability/size. Often this time of year we get the bonus of ice and snow that will make photos look like a winter wonderland, if you can stop shaking long enough to take photos.
Meet at the club to leave by 08.00 - as we have less daylight and we like to have a 50% safety margin on the water.
On average it's about a 2:15 drive. Often with longer shuttles run on a very narrow tractor filled roads. We probably won't be home much before 19:00.
Please register if you intend to come, it has car details and if driving how many boats you can carry, plus emergency contact details that make it a little easier for the organisers.
What to bring - the usual stuff but not forgetting-
Warm paddling kit it could be cold
A hot drink is now a must have - an unbreakable flask (attached) in the back of your boat.
Food - high energy food is best (flapjacks/Mars bars/banana etc. are good)
Dry warm clothes to get changed into post paddle.
A shovel to dig the car out of snow drift.
We share the cost of the fuel (220+ miles so could be around £30-£50 per car).
