What to take on a white water paddling trip

I thought I'd write out a quick guide on what to bring with you on an RLSCC white water kayaking trip if you're new to the whole thing. If you think I've missed anything let me know, and if you disagree with any parts of it feel free to try to change my mind. Just don't hit me.


An obvious one to start with but still worth a mention. If you're borrowing a club boat it should be one you've used before and are comfortable in. Before you set off from…

The Sennybridge Supermarket Shuffle - Usk Trip, January 2014

With the festive season came the rain; long awaited, we welcomed it at first. At last there would be water in the rivers. Then it became clear that after having how to rain for so many weeks it had also forgotten how to stop. When John Spooner posted his picture of the Usk out of its banks the week before the trip we began to question whether an advertised “WW novice suitable” trip was going to be on at all. The Upper Usk has a very short catchment. It rises quickly and falls just as fast.…

We have already identified the kit we need so expect to see it arriving in the…

19th October kayak surfing at Porthcawl cancelled

sorry guys, I cancelled this as a) not much interest 2) the forecast has got worse, according to magicseaweed, with confused seas being advertised when I planned on going. Never seen this before. What with higher winds, confused seas, and low tides, there is too much wrong to risk going all the way there. Brian
