Nene Flat Water Paddle and White Water Course Day Trip
7 July, 2018£10
The annual club trip to the river Nene and the Nene White Water Course is taking place on Saturday 6th July
This trip is aimed at youth paddlers from beginners to expert and also adult paddlers of all levels. Before paddling on the white water course, there will be a flat-water trip on the river Nene finishing at the White Water centre for tea, cakes and refreshments (please bring our own but shared cake is always welcome). After the river paddle, we will head out on the White Water course for a 2-hour bespoke paddling sessions for the club.
The river Nene is ideal for beginners (both youth and adults) and the White Water course provides a safe and controlled introduction to white water paddling. Therefore, all beginners are encouraged to come along and join this trip. There will be coaches and river leaders provided to guide beginner paddlers down the course and safety cover provided from the bank-side.
