FULL Spooky Paddle FULL

31 October, 2020 @ 16:00 - 22:00

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.  This may change depending on river / weather conditions and access as there is a lot of planned works on the Medway until next Spring. So please check website for any updates,

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:

THIS TRIP IS LIMITED TO 18 PEOPLE, IN 3 GROUPS TO COMPLY WITH COVID RULES.

BOOKINGS CLOSE 22.00 WEDNESDAY 28TH OCTOBER.

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.
