    • The Gower Peninsula

    Join us for our annual Easter surf trip. This year we are visiting The Gower peninsula in South Wales.

    This is a very relaxed trip with those paddling free to do as much or as little as they would like. We will hope the weather conditions are right for some surf at one of the many beaches on the Gower to play in. All abilities and crafts welcome, Nathan our surf guru will be on hand to give tips to all. Perfect for a family trip.

    Accommodation – We will be camping at Kennexstone Farm, Llangennith, Swansea SA3 1HS.

    You can book online gowercamping.co.uk or by phone 01792 386790, they will try their best to group our club together so please mention Pirates Canoe Club and/or Jill Evans to facilitate this. It is Easter weekend and we have been warned that the site maybe busy so booking sooner rather than later is advisable.

    Food arrangements – at your own discretion. BBQ’s can be used on site as long as they are off the ground and supervised.

    Don't forget to book any equipment you need.

    Organiser: Jill Evans

    On the water: Nathan Thompson

    • 10:00 - 16:00
    • Tonbridge to Yalding

    Spend the day paddling between Tonbridge and Yalding and get to experience an adventure in an open boat (canadian canoe).

    We will be setting off from Tonbridge swimming pool at around 10:00 and will stop for a picnic around lunch time. Then expect another couple of hours on the water before we reach Yalding (Tea Pot Island). In total, we expect to be on the water for 4-5 hours.

    We will be paddling in pairs so don't be too concerned about the length of the paddle - just make sure you sit at the back so the other person doesn't see you relaxing whilst they do the hard work!

    As we don't have open boats within the club we will be hiring them in. The benefit is that the hire includes everything so apart from a little help unloading and loading at each end, you only need to bring your lunch with you.

    Hire will include:

    • Boat
    • Paddle
    • BA
    • Helmet
    • Kit barrel and valuables box

    On the day, we will meet at Tonbridge for 09:00 and then shuttle all of the cars to Yalding so that they are waiting for us when we arrive at the end of our paddle. Speaking of which, there will be an obligatory drink in the pub at the end!

    This is a coached trip, so no experience is necessary and it is open to all ages and abilities.

    • Brecon Beacons
    • 15

    Join us on our inaugural club trip to the Brecon Beacon. Hopefully the river gods will be kind and allow us to paddle some of the best rivers South Wales has to offer.

    The aim is to travel up on the Friday afternoon/evening and stay at a bunkhouse. We will paddle on the Saturday and Sunday morning before travelling back late Sunday afternoon.

    Costs will be between around £40-£60 for 2 nights accommodation with food included. This will be in the form of self-catered meals, where everyone will be expected to muck in. Meals provided in this price will be breakfast on both days and an evening meal Saturday. Basic lunch ingredients will be provided, you will just need to make your own each day.

    You will need to arrange your own meal for Friday night.

    There will be a £20 deposit required when registering for the trip, this will secure your place in the accommodation. The balance will need to be paid by the beginning of April.

    The bunkhouse details are:

    Centref Adventure Farm, Brecon, Powys, LD3 8LR

    www.cantref.com

    We will aim to buddy people up for travelling to reduce fuel costs which will run to around £100 per car (we usually see between 2 and 4 people travelling together). 

    The trip will be split into three groups.

    1. Those with little to no moving water experience where formal coaching will be provided.
    2. Those with some moving water experience and wishing to develop their skills.
    3. And finally a peer group. 

    The bunk house can hold 24 people so do not delay in reserving your place.

    In the event we have more than 24 people interested in this trip, there is the possibility of housing a further 10 people in a separate bunkhouse.

    Organiser: Malcolm Oates, Tony Hogben and Sammy Deans

    On the water support Malcolm Oates, Sammy Deans and others 

    Don't forget to book equipment if you need it.

    We're currently planning our annual trip to the Alps in the summer. 

    You will need experience on moving water to attend the trip and we will mostly be paddling grade 2/3 rivers.

    Plans are at an early stage, but we need you to register for this trip to express your interest and show availability and so we can make further plans and discuss them with you.

    In previous years, the total cost of the trip including travel, accommodation and food has been £400-500 per person.

    Registering does not commit you to coming on this trip at this stage.

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.
  • Please note that if you are a non member i.e. you have not paid the annual membership fee (due by end of April), the cost for each and every organised event will be £10.
