RIVER THAMES - M12451/2018

x
From Saturday 08 September 2018
To Sunday 09 September 2018

Canoe Section Rally at Chertsey campsite on the river Thames. Thames and SE Group have booked 8 pitches and thus have rally rates for camping. 

Pre-booking with Robin is essential. It may be possible to add extra pitches to our booking – but please contact me soon, as I need to agree this with site.

On Sat 8 we will start at 10.30 with some safety practice.

Have you capsized or fallen in this year? Were you rescued? Could you rescue someone else? This session planned as a single half-day to practice our on-water safety procedures. It is fun too! Thames licence or British Canoeing card required. It involves: capsize rescue, towing, support strokes, plus any other aspect of interest. Bring ideas for different rescue techniques. All types of canoes/ kayaks. There are spare boats in the shed if required. Getting wet is not compulsory but this is a good opportunity to build confidence, so bring wetsuit, swim togs, spare clothes, nose clip – or just yourself!

There will be Canoe England coaches present.

Attendance at this (and similar sessions) will give run organisers assurance that you are prepared for our more challenging outings.

On Saturday afternoon and again Sunday we will set up one or more paddle trips to suit all.
