RIVER ARUN

x
From Saturday 02 July 2016
To Sunday 03 July 2016

(Note: no river Adur as originally noted) No licence requirement.

Please contact Robin if joining this event. Note the paddle distances. If you are a serious mileage collector, they may not be enough for you!

Saturday’s run. Plan is to depart from Arundel at local high water 11.45 and paddle on the ebb tide to Littlehampton. 13 miles. About 3 hours. So arrive approx 14.45.

Tide Sat 2.7.16, HW Dover= 09.55 BST.  HW L/Hampton = 10.15 BST, HW Arundel= 11.05, HW Houghton=11.45.

Due to the rapidly ebbing tide, stopping for a break on the way is probably not feasible. Of course a couple of cars at least need to be set up at Littlehampton during the morning (An alternative is for the drivers to get a train back at cost of £4.10, while the non-drivers enjoy Littlehampton fish and chips and ice cream!).

Sun – paddle from Arundel up to Pulborough:

Tides: Sun 3.7.16, Dover HW= 10.53BST,  HW L/Hampton = 11.12BST , HW Houghton= 1hr 30 after Littlehampton, =12.42. Hw Pulb = 15.07, so to do 8 miles with tide, say 3.0 hours (maybe less), so launch at 12.00.

Again we need to set cars at Pulborough Rail station car park  Map ref 042185 postcode RH201SG , - there is a parking charge at station. (In Pulborough turn west onto A283 (towards Petworth). Station is a few hundred metres on right just before railway bridge).

(Unless we can persuade a couple of non-paddlers to meet us! In which case the river bridge, where we finish, is map ref 046185, postcode RH20 2BJ).

Camping:

Due to Club and National Park regulations, we cannot have a club ‘meet’ in this National Park without a long notice term. So this is not a club camping meet. Attendees will need to camp as individual units.
