Being planning on doing this paddle for a while now but not got round to it, so now's the time to remedy that. Ideally suited to a winter paddle as it is not dependent on tides etc.
We will be meeting at the pub car park at 11am, we are fine to park there for free as long as we have a drink or a bite to eat once we finish. Hopefully be in the water and off paddling by 11:15'ish and spend around 2 hours out on the water. We will be heading south to join with the River Wey. There may be one lock to navigate, but this is either a very short portage or a trip through, depending.
We will then be returning to the Anchor Pub for a drink and a bite to eat.
Any questions then just ask. Hope to see you there,
See below for the groups responsibilities and guidelines and I look forward to seeing some of you there. Cheers, Jason.
1. Hampshire Casual Kayakers, as many groups organized through meetup.com, is a networking group. Our organizers and hosts are not designated with the responsibility to teach kayaking or other boating skills.
2. Our organizers and hosts are people who like to kayak, not necessarily expert paddlers.
3. The host of each of our Hampshire Casual Kayakers events has some responsibility to post a description of our proposed trips, with suggestions about when and where we will go, and how we will get there.
4. No one is leading any of our floats, or providing any formal instruction.
5. Paddlers who join us will be responsible for themselves, and parents are responsible for their minors.
6. You have a responsibility to ask questions and to share any concerns you might have about your abilities with the group before you launch and to make sure you are in a group where at least one other person has enough experience and is willing to take you under their wing or assist you when needed.
7. As a community of peers, everyone should watch out for each other.
8. Decisions about activities on trips are often made collectively, on the spot, by those who show up. Occasionally, but rarely, people that show up split into smaller groups each going their own direction based on similar interests. Members of each group are then responsible to watch out for each other.
