    We are heading to the coast.

    Join us on for an evening Surf/Sea Paddle @ Folkestone - Open to all paddlers, Sea, Kayak or SUPS

    Depending on the weather, we will either meet at Sunny Sands or close to the Coastal Park from where we will head to Mermaid Bay - please keep an eye on your inbox for final details.

    If we meet at Sunny Sands, it is best to drop off your equipment at the meet point and then look for a parking space. There is a public car park on Tram Road or you may get a free spot Wear Bay Rd. Please remember to pay if required and don't park in residential spaces.

    The plan will be to get on at the harbour and paddle around, then head out to the sea and see what the surf is like. If it is pan flat we'll head to Mermaid Bay.

    We should be on the water for no more that 2 hours so don't forget a drink and snack.

    This trip is suitable for all members, including beginners

    Organiser: Malcolm Oates

    Group leaders: Malcolm Oates and Sammy Deans

    Don't forget, you must bring your own equipment.

    If you need EQUIPMENT then please make sure you book it and arrange to collect it with Jochen. If you cannot bring a boat with you, please let Jochen know and we will see if one can be brought along for you.

    Monday nights at Conningbrook lake

    With the lighter evenings and warmer weather on the horizon we are pleased to announce the return of our regular meet up on a Monday night at Conningbrook lake.

    -----------------------

    The road, access, point to Conningbrook remains unchanged, as to last year, with the same parking arrangements.

    (Junction point here https://w3w.co/mirror.logic.class). *

    As parking is limited by the lake, we ask where possible, that you drop off boats/kit, and park in the newly laid access road. There are limited spaces, if we park sensibly, we will be able to accommodate everyone.

    (Container location is here https://w3w.co/closes.fence.panel)*

    PLEASE NOTE.

    There are NO official changing facilities onsite. You will either have to get changed by your car or under the shelter by the lake. This is not ideal, we know, but this is what we have to work with. Please consider other facility users (Families / Walkers) when getting changed. 

    The sessions will be around 1-2 hours so don't forget a drink and snack if needed

    These sessions are suitable for all members who can paddle in a straight line for 50m and perform a self-rescue**.

    Please bring your own equipment if you have it, however we have access to our store boats so equipment can be borrowed; including SUPS (stand-up paddle boards), Canoes and Kayaks.

    (You will be expected to assist with the unloading and loading of the container for any equipment used)

    * 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.

Event Notes

  • All paddles start at 10am unless otherwise stated.
  • Waterways licences are required on inland rivers and canals within England.
  • Please ensure you understand the trip definitions and the expectation of you and a member of the group.
  • It is important the organiser of each trip knows you are intending to attend, otherwise they may leave without you, or decide a slight change in plan due to weather or water conditions.
  • Peer-peer paddles may be coordinated directly by email, text, group-chat, social media or phone as these are more relaxed.
