Liffey 24-10-15
« on: October 18, 2015, 23:19:48 »
So to get us back up and paddling after last weekends unfortunate events, we'll be heading out on our first full Liffey run this weekend. Hurrah!!!!!!

When: Saturday 24th October

Where: the lovely Liffey (sluice to strawberry beds)

Plan: Meet at the Boathouse at 10am
         We'll pick up all our gear, load the trailer and pile on to the bus!!

What to bring:   
•   €10! This covers the cost of the bus and instructors 

•   Warm clothes!!!! ….you know the drill at this stage!!
(avoid cotton at all costs! It makes you very, very cold when you’re wet). Anything made out of 'poly-' materials is a good bet!  Fleeces are great! Fleecy pyjamas are even better! Tights make a good layer, especially to pop over your fleecy layers before trying to put on a wetsuit (even the lads should consider investing!!) If you have a wetsuit bring it! If not, the club has a small selection of them...try to get to the boathouse on time to get first pick!

You can never, ever have enough layers!!!
So here’s your essential guide to keeping nice and toasty on the river ; http://forum.ucdcanoeclub.com/index.php/topic,10222.0.html

•   A pair of old shoes! (Or wet booties if you have them). For this trip socks won’t work...the water is going to be low, so if you come out of the boat, you'll be stepping on rocks (which is not fun in socks!) If you don't have a pair, pop into your local Penneys or Tesco and pick up a pair of cheap shoes!

•   Towel and warm, dry clothes for afterwards!

•   Some hot stuff! Flasks of tea, soup, hot blackcurrant...they'll all be much appreciated on the bus home!!  And chocolate bars or cereal bars!!  Nothing better than some sugar after a fun day on the water (avoid things that aren't in wrappers though, cause you won’t want to wait to wash your hands before eating them!).

NB if you have not already been to a Pool Session, you must attend one before this trip. Committee members will take you through same basic safety drills cause nobody wants to be taking a cold dip in the Liffey :o

Sign-up closes at 9pm Wednesday.
