The down low for Dun Laoghaire this weekend!
« on: September 20, 2016, 20:28:34 »
When: Sunday 25th September
Where: West Pier Dun Laoighaire
Time: 11:45am at the Dart Station or 12:00am at the West Pier

The Canoe Club is finally back in action and we are heading to Dun Laoghaire for our first trip this Sunday. There will also be some snacks and warm juice for afterwards of course.

How to get there:
The DART will bring you right there!
If you're coming from campus, the 46a bus is your best bet and will leave you off at the Dun Laoghaire DART station too (last stop)!
Other buses that will get you there are: 7, 7a, 8, 45a, 46a, 59, 75, 111

There will be a member of the club waiting at the dart station with a paddle or else walk down to the West Pier to the trailer full of boats.

What you need:
•   € 5 and €20 if you have not already paid membership.
•   Some thermal clothes. Avoid cotton at all costs, it soaks up water and makes you very, very cold! Materials that start with 'poly-' are the way to go! Fleeces and tights (even for the guys!) are brilliant additions as well  Bring an old pair of shoes that you don't mind getting wet and if you have a wet-suit, bring it along! If you have an old light rain jacket that you don't mind getting wet, they work nicely to stop the wind giving you a chill!
•   A towel and dry clothes for afterwards!
•   Some money for some sandwiches/pizza/tea/coffee/anything warm that you may want!
•   Coins for the bus/ DART

For anyone who hasn't been to a pool session yet, you‘re still more than welcome to come along. Just let the instructors know that you haven't been and they'll organise for you to do a short swim test and capsize drill out there  ;D

I'd love to come but I'll be demonstrating marine biology field work at Seapoint! Do say hello if you happen to paddle by!  :)
