    We will be travelling to North Wales for some fun on 'proper' rivers.

    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 on the Sunday afternoon.

    Costs will likely be between £30 and £50 for 2 nights accommodation plus you will need to factor meals in. 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). There will be a £20 deposit required when registering for the trip so we can book the accommodation. The accommodation balance will need to be paid once we have booked and know the final cost. You will be expected to organise meals and fuel yourself.

    We are looking to book accommodation at the end of September so we would advise you register before this date. You are welcome to register later, but we cannot guarantee accommodation will still be available or you may need to make your own arrangements.

    You will need some experience of moving water to attend this trip. If you are unsure, please speak to one of the organisers.

    We plan to hire some canoes and take a leisurely paddle down the Royal Military Canal ending up at Unit Number 1 for drinks and a bite to eat.

    There will be a small charge for the canoes and you will need money for drinks and food at the end.

    We should be on the water for around 2 hours.

    Further details to follow.

    Organiser: Tony Hogben and Sammy Deans

    On the water support: Tony Hogben, Mike Webster and Sammy Deans

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

    Join us at Yalding for a paddle around the loop.

    We will meet on Hampstead Lane as close to the Anchor Inn as possible but on the road, not the pub car park.

    This trip is suitable for all members who can paddle in a straight line for 50m.

    We should be on the water for around 2 hours.

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.
