Firework paddle and Saturday sessions

Dear Paddler
The firework paddle will be taking place this Saturday evening which is starting at Notts kayak Club, by the Forest Ground.
However, this is a peer paddle, so you should be confident about your ability to paddle upstream against the flow and any wind for about an hour, and to take care of your own safety and those around you.
Departure from the Kayak club is at 7.45pm ready to be at Wilford for the display at 9pm.
Paddle back after the display and off the water by about 10.15pm.
Paddlers must display a red light on the back of their boat or BA.
This is a great paddle but there will be no coaches or leaders to support the trip so you must be capable of sorting yourselves out and looking after yourselves on the water with those around you.
Kit can be borrowed from the club on Saturday morning.
The Saturday morning sessions are still running as normal during the winter period so we look forward to seeing you, although if you want to paddle on the course please check that it is open, the water levels need to be at 2.2 or lower at Colwick park.
Paddle safely wherever you go.
Regards Dawn
