So who’s up for a spooky paddle on Halloween 👻 ?

A fun evening moonlight paddle and bonfire with some hot food included. Costumes optional !

Where:

Meet at Yalding at 4pm. Hampstead Lane, Yalding nr Maidstone ME18 6HG.  This trip is weather permitting, and could be cancelled at short notice if deemed unsafe.

The plan is to paddle up to Sluice Weir where we will stop and have hotdogs and soup round a bonfire with sparklers. And then return.

Boat & Equipment:

Usual boat use charges apply. We suggest head torches and glow sticks or fairy lights to illuminate your boat and kit. The more the better!!  All boats are required to display a white bow light.  Obviously we recommend they are waterproof…

You will need a drysuit or wetsuit and cag for this event.  Please ensure you wear or bring plenty of warm clothing including a warm hat or helmet.

Costs:

There will be a charge of £5 to cover food and sparklers. If you require a boat or equipment the usual hire cost of £5 will apply.

Other Information:

Due to the nature of the trip, U14s only in boats with a parent or guardian. U18s at trip organisers discretion.  You must be a competent 2* standard paddler due to the nature of this trip

We will operate a buddy system to ensure a safe and fun paddle.

Anyone requiring any club kit should contact the trip organiser or another member of the committee.  Kit hire is £5 towards wear and tear.

The Trip Organiser and/or Lead Coach have the final say.
The club recommends that all boats are fitted with rear air bags, this is to assist with safety for all on the water.
