Intro to moving water
UPDATE: Wrong date on the original event notification - this is on Sunday 1st August!
To compliment the trip to Matlock, we are running an introduction to moving water session at Yalding.
The aim of the session will be to introduce everyone to breaking into and out of an eddy, ferry gliding and a little surfing.
We will be doing this below the bridge at Yalding when the sluice gate open up, when the gate is shut we can look at SUP and kayak skills.
The session is open to all club members who can preform a self rescue**, there is a high possibility of getting wet and swimming but that is all part of the fun, esp. if you are SUP'ing.
Organiser's: Malcolm Oates & Tony Hogben
Location - Yalding Car Park *
Equipment - Bring your own or Borrow Club Kit
Toilets - Public toilets onsite
Changing Facilities - Alfresco (we will have a gazebo for those wanting some privacy)
* We are now using WHAT3WORD when giving out meet up locations; it provides a more precis location for more remote sites that we use. If you do not already have it on your phone, we strongly advise downloading the app, its free so no reason not to have it. It is also used by emergency services throughout the southeast and can be given as a location reference when needing their services. (https://what3words.com/)
** A self-rescue is generally an eskimo roll/rescue or swimming to the bank with your boat and paddle, retrieving it from the water and getting back in unassisted. This can be taught in the skills session.
