Sunday 14th August 2022 - River Adur from Shoreham

Run leader Martin Dunn This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 07714 329271. This trip already has sufficient interest to confirm that it will be running.

Although we did this as part of our Arun and Adur weekend camp a few months ago, this is a further opportunity to do this lovely stretch of tidal water as a day paddle. High tide at Shoreham is 2pm which means this will be a later than normal finish. Due to parking I would still suggest arriving early i.e. 10:00-10:30 am for an 11:00am launch. We then have the option to either paddle into the harbour before heading up river and/or to leave early to paddle higher up than normal (i.e. above Bramber/Upper Beeding) before lunching and returning back to Shoreham around 5pm.

Meet by 10:30am on Harbour Way near the junction with The Moorings in Shoreham, W3W:earful.cleans.crafts, lat/long 50.830005, -0.254333,  OS: TQ 2303 0483.

Whilst not organised, if anyone wants to camp Janet H. has suggested Findon, Wild Heart Hill Camp CS1324 in the club sites book. Please check availability and book individually.

Weekend 3rd-4th September 2022 River Thames - Lechlade Alternative

Please note that the Thames & South East Groups annual Chertsey event has been cancelled due to concerns over site availability and attendee numbers. As a suggested alternative, the West Country Group are running an event on the Thames at Lechlade. Anyone interested in attending the Lechlade event are advised to book directly with the campsite asap to avoid disappointment.  

Please note the safety policy (see elsewhere in article) and the following information:

You must inform the run leader in advance if you are planning to attend a paddle or event. 

Remember to bring your Club membership cards to all club events, since we are required to check and record memberships are current.  We also need to record BRITISH CANOEING numbers for those who have them. Paddlers need to be a member of the Canoe-camping Club and/or British Canoeing. These are needed to ensure that we are covered by the Club's and British Canoeing's insurance.

All participants in club trips or meets do so at their own risk, and neither the Club nor its officers can accept any liability for loss or injury of any kind sustained whilst on a Club trip, meet or other activity.

As a section of the Camping and Caravanning Club, our camping events are restricted to Camping and Caravanning Club members only (including Canoe Camping Club members), anyone participating must be a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club before attending a camping meet. We do allow guest paddlers on most day trips.

 

CCC SAFETY POLICY (SUMMARY)

The Safety Policy can be viewed using the main menu of this website. Key points of the Safety Policy are summarised below.

  • Please ensure you and your canoe, are appropriate for the trip and properly equipped.

  • A briefing will normally precede the trip/event.  

  • A competent adult must accompany young people aged between 8 and 18 years who must have the parents signed permission to canoe (a form is supplied).

Canoeing and kayaking are ‘assumed risk’ ‘water contact’ activities, however serious accidents are very rare. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own action and involvement.
