Sorry if this is a little longer than most than most but I wanted to put in some detail that those who may not have been on a club trip bepfre might want to know,

We are off to the River Wye on the 7th and 8th of September and its great first trip away with the club.

It’s a touring trip of about 12 miles each day , but because we will be paddling with the flow if you have been to the mill and back you shouldn’t have an issue, especially mainly for logistics I am working on the basis that a number of canoes will be tandem.

We will camp at Bycross farm, this is a site that allows us to have a fire to sit around and cook marshmallows (if anyone remembers to bring them!) In terms of food, lunches and cooked breakfast Saturday and Sunday will be provided. We will stop off at motorway services on the way there and back.

You will need your own tent, but you are more than welcome to use club cags, buoyancy aids and of course boats.

Saturday evening meal will either be wood fired pizza (if being served) or the pub.

Transport will be minibus leaving at 4:30 on Friday 6th,

I would anticipate getting back to Norwich at about 8 – 9 on the Sunday

Cost is £80 and includes breakfast and lunch Saturday and Sunday, transport and accommodation.

Please note the cost doesn’t include evening meals.

As always sign up is no guarantee of a place as apart for anything else we are dependant on sufficient safety cover, but I will do my utmost to make sure if you want to come you can.

Online sign up is now open until 20th August (so if you are on the Trywerlyn trip remember to sign up before your go!) Please advise • If you want to paddle a canoe or kayak • Club boat or own • If you have a preferred tandem partner. (if so who) • If you have any dietary requirements (if so what) • If you can’t make a 4:30 departure what is the earliest you could leave • If you are willing to share driving of the minibus • If you can help with the shopping
