To kick off our series of general club touring paddles I will be leading a trip from Eckington on the River Avon down to Tewkesbury (either town centre or Lower Lode).
This paddle takes about 2.5 to 3.5 hours and is suited to those club members who have either paddled with club last year and some of our newer members. For some of the new and less experienced members there is an option to get off the water about half way (Twyning – Tewkesbury side. GPS: 52.027225, -2.139084, w3w: brew.pesky.backward) after about 1.5 hours paddling.
The plan is to either meet at Eckington at 9.30am for people with their own equipment, or at the canoe club base at 8.30 to pick up equipment from storage.
Launch point (Eckington): GPS 52.078703, -2.114726; What3Words: cabs.gain.heap
In the the first instance please can you let me know if intend on coming along and if you require use of club kit. When I know who is coming along I can plan the logistics transport / get off points
Please can you reply by end of Thursday 25th
*For some of our newer and less experienced members, Brian and Derry will be posting another trip which be shorter to occur on the Friday 26th April for – details to follow.
