Week 3: First Trip - Dun Laoghaire
« on: September 25, 2019, 14:45:58 »
When:Sunday 29th September
Where: Dun Loaghaire

Cost: €10!

PLAN OF ACTION: Meet at the boat house at 10am and hit the road!   

If you don't know where the boat house is by now, it's on Google maps!: https://goo.gl/maps/e5witrtJsjD2

We will be heading to Dun Laoghaire to do some flat water work. It'll be a great day to build up skills and it is officially the first trip of the semester  ;D

What to bring:
  €10! This covers the cost of the trip

•   Warm clothes!!!!
(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 ensure you have been to at least one pool session before signing up so we know you have completed your swim test!

Otherwise, you'll have to do your swim test in the river...

Sign-up strictly closes at 12:00PM Friday afternoon. Any late sign-ups will be placed on a waiting list.

Please be reminded that if you sign-up and do not turn up for the trip without good notice, a charge of €5 will be applied
 


Bring any medication you might need, and inform a committee member if there are any conditions you think we should know about.

Hope to see ya'll there  :discopaddler: :discopaddler: :discopaddler:
