Unfortunately the display will not now be happening on this date hence the cancellation of the trip.

Really sorry, Mike

CAP River trip on Sunday 7th October THE BURPHAM LOOP on the River Wey.

 An ideal warm up trip prior to the forthcoming Whitewater Weekend !

 Hi All

We’ll be paddling The Burpham Loop, a section of the River Wey, situated an easy drive from us, just off the A3,  midway between the M25/ A3 junction and Guildford.   

A circular 5 mile paddle so no need for a car shuttle. We’ll start of a with a short warm up along the River to get our newcomers warmed up. We’ll then portage across to beneath a Weir and those that want to can experience having their boat’s nose  held in the Weir pour-over by one of our team,get an impression of what it’s like to ride a Weir wave ! (All good wet fun !)

We’ll then set off and follow a sometimes swiftly moving stream, paddling right around the island which contains Burpham Park Farm. En route we will probably have to slalom down and under a few fallen trees which will require some quick thinking and skilled paddling, but with our team on hand to guide and assist.  A scenic flat water paddle through the green countryside follows and then the chance to shoot a small easy-peasy weir, with once again our team standing in the water to make it nice and easy but a different experience for you. Beyond the Weir there’s some fast flowing water coming off another Weir you can either play in that or sit to one side and watch the others at play,probably also get some basic tuition in the skills of ferry gliding, breaking in and breaking out,all of which will be very useful skills on the Whitewater weekend.

Eventually we’ll paddle back along the River/Canal and end up back at the get out.                      As always we’ll finish off the day in a local Inn to discuss just how well everybody did, or not ?? ? 

PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE, I WILL THEN EMAIL OUT “THE FINALS” no later than Friday eve.

Any queries please email me, hoping to see you many of you afloat with us on Sunday !

 All the best

 Mike

CANCELLATION OF  …. "Ride The Arun Loop… from and to Arundel"

Regret, after consultation with our regular trip goers, this trip has been cancelled

due to many of the Club attending Ivan's Birthday party on the previous evening ,

not wanting to encourage people to then drink and drive on the following morning !

We'll leave this trip till next Summer now, tide timings don't work in subsequent weeks

and in any case it's really a Summertime trip with usual intentions of actually playing

in the river, bridge jumping etc. wet and wild, but needs the Sun to be shining on us !

Really sorry,   Mike

Are you interested in a really leisurely, scenic, tranquil paddle through beautiful countryside with a chance to visit the remains of a canal-side 12th century castle ........

Then this is the trip for you ...... BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 27th AUGUST 2018  

Only about a 75 minute drive from Croydon, along the M25 and M3, we'll be paddling from Winchfield Hurst in Hampshire, to Odiham Castle,                                      a distance of circa 4.5 - 5.0 miles, so nice and easy !

It's on the Basingstoke Canal but it’s a very beautiful stretch,  heading for the end of the navigable Canal so not much traffic, maybe the odd canal-boat, ducks and families of swans etc.

The canal winds through some beautiful Hampshire countryside, really green, lots of trees and colourful flowers. This part of the canal is fed from underground streams that emerge from the nearby Greywell Tunnel and as such the water in many parts is Crystal clear, you can easily see the bottom and all the water plants as you paddle along.                                 

 At the end of the trip we'll egress right beside the beautiful and well preserved remains of 12th century Odiham Castle. You can walk through the Castle's remains and there are boards telling you about some of the history.   It's then just a 5 minute drive to the beautiful  Mill House Inn, a Grade 2 listed Watermill with extensive gardens lining the banks of the swirling Mill Pond, a couple of drinks in the sun, what a way to finish a lovely day out in the countryside !

Drinking & Eating around the World …                 Why not join us at The White Bear, near New Addington, a lovely country Pub, outdoor lunch & drinks,            watch as The Red Arrows and other historic aircraft perform flypasts to nearby Biggin Hill’s                 “Festival of Flight…100yrs of the RAF”.

A lovely and different way to enjoy Sunday lunch and drinks in the Summer.

The aircraft, particularly the likes of The Red Arrows normally loop around the White Bear Pub but no guarantee of what aircraft you will see, this very much depends on display patterns, weather, wind and cloud levels !
