Mid Week Paddles

Pensioners paddling on river spey

This year we are looking to organise mid week paddling sessions for paddlers looking to develop skills, aimed at our older paddlers this is an opportunity to develop skills and paddle on the river. For a social paddling session with a bunch of like minded paddlers. 
our mid week sessions are ideal for older paddlers as they are organised by our team of silver surfers and so are aimed at people looking to stay active and become part of the paddling community at the club.

I am proposing a midweek paddle programme for Autumn and Winter up to Christmas supported by Andy, John and a new guy who some of you have met, Richard. One week on the River Stort to include taster sessions for new paddlers and the next week away to other rivers for regular or proven competent paddlers.
As daylight in November and December reduces the River Lea and Stort back to Redricks Lake from both directions will reduce travelling time. So as follows. 

Thursday 11th October - Hertford to Rye House. Lea. Tuesday. 

16th October. - St.Ives loop. Great Ouse. Thursday. 

8th November-Chelmsford to Paper Mill Chelmer. Thursday. 

22nd November-Rye House to White Water Centre. Lea Thursday. 

6th December-Rye House or HCYC to Redricks. Lea/Stort.
Tuesday 18th December-Lock 1 to Redricks. Stort. 

Numbers maybe limited to the number of Kayaks/Canoes we can transport on the roofs of our cars unless the trailer can be used.
