I am delighted that Chris Newcombe and Dave Guntrip are now putting the programme of trips together for the autumn and new year.
All of the club trips will be advertised on the club website and through the newsletter, and booking is through the event portal. There are no charges for these trips, and club boats are available.
All bookings must be made through the event portal, and this will give you the chance to book equipment such as boats. For some trips a trailer may be available for transporting equipment, for others paddlers will need to get kit there themselves. Club trips are led by qualified coaches or leaders or aspirant leaders.
These trips are all appropriate for paddlers with some experience, Discover or Explore awards are ideal, and this is the opportunity to put those skills into practice.
Great Hayward loop trip – Sunday 27th October (This Sunday) a 9 mile trip on the river and canal, a few portages.
Newark Loop – Sunday 24th November – a 10 mile trip on gently moving water on the river Trent.

This year we are having a different Christmas event which will be held at the Poppy and Pint in Nottingham. Costs will be kept to under £10 and this is designed to be a family friendly event.
A large meeting room with the chance to circulate and meet your friends, share a buffet and a drink and enjoy some home grown entertainment.
Booking will open shortly on the website.
We look forward to seeing you getting out on these paddles and putting your skills into action.
