Christmas River Trip
« on: November 24, 2015, 21:46:21 »
So with the recent rain we'll be heading off this weekend to paddle Wicklow. The almighty River Gods have been kind to us!!

When: Saturday 28th November

Where: Wicklow

Plan: Meet at the Boathouse at 10am to pick out your gear, load the trailer and pile on to the bus.

Sign-up closes at 12pm Thursday. Any sign-ups after this deadline cannot be accomodated.

What to bring:

•   €10! This covers the cost of the bus and instructors J

•   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!).

Please note from now on that if you sign-up for a trip and say you are going but do not turn up on the Saturday then you will be charged €5 to cover some of the cost we would have spent on transport for you.

I'll be going but driving, if there be water I'd be up for running trooperstown down first, perhaps bring our new Level 3's down and see what they think? :D
