Week 3 River Trip!
« on: February 07, 2017, 14:15:07 »
When: This Saturday 11th February
Where: Wicklow or Liffey (depending on levels, get sacrificing goats and virgins to the rain gods)
Plan: Meet at the boat house at 10am for the trailer pack.

Sooo just as the Varsities hangover is settling (RIP my bank account), it's time to get back on the water so we'll all be even more unreal for next Varsities. We're gonna have ourselves a nice cozy bus to bring us to the river, so no need for drivers.

Get yo name down!

Let the copy and paste begin:

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!  (I mean does anyone really read this now .... )

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! (Honestly, fair play if you are still soldiering on and reading this ... Or you're a Fresher ..)

•   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!).

Good of you to consider us, Greg. We know how you hate to be held back by inferior paddlers (direct quote, he said that, those exact words).
