Trent loop trip 12th August

We are planning to run the Trent loop trip on Saturday 12th August….so an ideal tag on to the Family & Friends night at the Club on Friday 11th. Perhaps a camp over!

So, the trip runs from Holme Pierrepont, up the River Trent (past the football stadium), onto the canal section that runs all the way up to Beeston, then portage back on to the River Trent (although a section that is not navigable to larger craft) and then finally back on to the deeper River back to Holme Pierrepont.

The trip is c. 12 – 13 miles and so a good warm up before our trip from Ripon to York in September.

If you are interested in coming along, put the date in your diary and let me know so we have an idea of numbers/boats.

Late Summer trip

We have our camp and paddle weekend away planned in for 23rd/24th September.

We will be camping at Linton Lock at Linton on Ouse and paddling from Ripon to York over the weekend. The paddle will be a similar distance to the River Wye trip, so c. 17 miles on the Saturday and c. 12 on the Sunday.

I need an idea of numbers so that we can book with the camp site and we will need firm numbers and deposits in advance.

So, can those of you who are interested in attending please let me know (email or PM are fine).






Late Summer Paddle update:

I have had initial responses back on the September paddle from Ripon to York.

I currently have a dozen on this list (although a few are still to confirm definitely from those).

The campsite have confirmed that they are happy with a mix of vans, caravans & tents.

The price of the site is £20 per night. So £40 for the two nights. There is a pub with food on site (may need to pre book), or a fairly short walk to a local Indian restaurant.

I would like to take a one night (£20 deposit) for each tent, van, caravan attending please so that I can guarantee our pitches. Over the next couple of weeks would be great if possible.

Next Family and Friends Friday 7th July.

Hi all, because a number of the usual helpers are away, I will be looking for some help organising and running the upcoming event. As we are approaching the school holidays so the emphasis will probably be on water based games.

Thank you.
