Want to organise a river trip? You'll need to have a Level 3 coach supporting it. Chat with one of them and then let Wendy know the date and proposed grade of your trip, along with any other info to go on the web-site.

 

Another way to go about it is to make a suggestion to one of the Trustees and work with us so we can ensure a safe trip.

Darren Clarkson-King speaking at the club

 

How I accidentally made a living from kayaking

 

Since 1995 Darren has been paddling around the world, since 2000 he has concentrated his efforts in the Himalayas. From first descents, speed descents and writing books he still manages to run a boutique adventure company – Pure Land Expeditions. We are pleased that he will be visiting us to deliver a talk with highlights of 20 years of Himalayan paddling.

 

Proceeds after expenses go to the Darren Cresser appeal to help adapt his family home.

 

Starts at 7pm with food for those who've booked it and Mr Clarkson-King begins at 7.30pm.

Slalom Training

 

A specific training session focusing purely on full runs. Build your stamina. No complaining!

Remember, you should already be including full run length training into your weekly schedule.

 

Let Mark know if you'll be coming.

Sunday 25th March                                                                                                                  Mark

Our Washburn Cruise

 

  • The Washburn cruises are hosted by Yorkshire clubs on a rotation.
  • It's potentially a fund-raiser for the club.
  • We need people to take money on the gate.
  • We need someone to check the river beforehand and someone to unlock the site.
  • We could run a food stall with enough volunteers.

 

Let Mark know if you'll be helping, and what you'd be able to do.
