The River Wey ..Byfleet Mill to Shepperton,                  a usually swift moving downstream paddle, a lunch stop opposite Brooklands Aircraft Museum eat your picnic lunch whilst overlooking Concorde on the opposite Bank.

Towards the end there will hopefully be a chance to shoot a tiny Weir and then run a fast little stream with a couple of drops for some added excitement !

CAP’s Beach Party .. join us as we play in the waves, Swimming, Kayaking, Kayak Surfing etc. or maybe just sunbathe and watch the action ?                      

A 2.00pm high tide should ensure that the waves keep rolling in, plenty of time for surfing and general wet fun !

Our favourite Beach spot on the extensive sandy Beaches of West Wittering in Sussex.

We'll bring a trailer load of boats and people can just swap around and enjoy the fun in the Sun !

   Hello fellow Cappers, Ian, Jenny, family and friends are going down to the woods Saturday 23rd June                                                  if the weather is good and cordially extend an invitation to all and sundry to celebrate the Summer Soltice                                          in true Pagan fashion, other fashions are also welcome

 The lake is big enough for swimming and boating, and you should be able find somewhere to pitch a tent in the 100 acres if you fancy staying over.

 Our friend Boris will be roasting a suckling pig, if he can first catch it. Otherwise we’ll bring a truckload of sausages, chops etc

Please bring your salad of choice and liquid refreshments

The bonfire will be as big as we can be bothered to make it, if it can’t be seen by satellite I figure I’ve failed

Please RSVP so we know how many cows to kill

We’ll start of beside Sonning Bridge in Berkshire, on one of the more picturesque sections of the River Thames.        We’ll paddle downstream, being carried along by the flow for about 1.5miles until we reach St Patrick’s Stream.  We’ll then branch off along St Patricks  stream, a narrow quite fast moving stream which twists and turns through the verdant green overhanging vegetation.  Eventually we’ll join the end of The River Loddon which is lined with millionaires houses and ultimately drops us back into the Thames for the final short leg to Wargrave.                                           Dependant on how people are getting on, we’ll probably end the trip here but maybe we’ll continue, still downstream along the River Thames and then round the island and paddle back up the Hennerton backwater, some 2kms to the Riverside Pub at Wargrave. The Hennerton is a sleepy narrow backwater lined with millionaires houses and gardens.  So effectively covering three of four different waterways all downstream, flowing with the current, except for the final 2km up the placid & quaint Hennerton stream.

Get on near Chertsey, paddle along the Thames and then head off into the “jungle wilderness” a tiny little stream meandering through the Woods, maybe bashing through the Jungle then two hours later we arrive at Chertsey Weir, where a few may wish to exhibit their skills riding the pour-over whilst others maybe watch and admire ?

We’re returning for another leisurely paddle over a beautiful stretch of the River Loddon, in Berkshire

finishing up with a short distance on the majestic River Thames paddling from Winnersh to Wargrave.

About seven miles but there is usually a constant flow which carries us along nicely and the entire trip will be flowing WITH the current. 

The Loddon is a meandering and twisty river, quite narrow in parts, maybe a few fallen trees to dodge around or under, always fun !,

also a nice sloping sluice weir to shoot, maybe a big wave to crash through and then time to play on the wave afterwards.

Last time we did this trip we saw quite a wide variety of wildlife along the river banks.

A mix of secluded countryside and then in the final couple of miles view the millionaires houses that line the attractive riverbanks.

 As always, we’ll stop for a riverside picnic lunch and then finish off at a Riverside Pub, sit back, in the sun, watching the river life float by

The following write up from the "Pub Paddles Book" describes this particular trip,

including saying …..    "a surprisingly clean, swift flowing stream which makes a fine little adventurous expedition"

Two days of Waterborne fun over the Mayday weekend, just the sort of thing that CAP love !

On Sunday KENT CANOES &  IN RANGE ARCHERY will be organising an Open day on the River Medway at Yalding. There will be a fleet of demo boats for people to try, including SUPs (Stand Up Paddle Boards) Canoes and Kayaks as well  as maybe trying your hand at some Archery.  In the early evening there will be a communal BBQ if you want to cook your smoky meal or alternatively we could. Pre-book a table for Dinner at the adjacent and newly opened riverside Pub, The Boathouse. In the evening, starting at 9.30pm  there will be an Open Air Film Festival, chill in the balmy  evening, beer in hand and watch at least a couple of professionally made Kayaking Films which are being toured Worldwide !

The two headliners are :                                                                                                             

Inside the Indus: A white water kayaking film following two of the world’s best kayakers taking on the Indus in Pakistan

 Finally a limited amount of "pre-booked" camping space will be available overnight.

 Bookings are essential for The Sunday events, direct with the organisers , these are not organised by or controlled by CAP

Can I suggest that you email Mike with your intentions, what sessions you intend to join in with ? will you camp overnight ?Will you cook on the Barbie unit or prefer an early (pre film) Dinner in the Pub ? please also sign up on the CAP website …In say ten days time I will then circularise everyone who’s registered with me, I’ll let you all know what the other CAP members are planning and then we can all make our final call as to whether or not we attend and also for which events.Don’t overly want people randomly booking  events and then finding no one else is joining them and they’re all on their lonesome !

We’re going to paddle the River Wey, accessing the river close to Newark Priory, at Ripley, off the A3 near Guildford and then doing a circular trip of about five miles.  Initially we’ll follow the fairly straight line of upstream on the Wey Navigation but then we’ll fork off onto  the old river and come to a site, in the middle of nowhere, that used to be an old deserted printing works but has now been rebuilt as a large luxury apartment complex with the river literally running underneath it !.

We’ll have two options here, hopefully portaging around it, which is what we did last time,  may have to bash our way through the undergrowth and carry the boats a little way,  a CAP jungle exploration J and then, unless things have changed, there’s a nice little pour-over for you to try and play on. We’ll check the portage before everyone does it and if access to the river has been sealed off we can just continue around a smaller loop although then missing some of the Old Woking area)!

After the apartment the current is quite swift and we’ll be swept nicely along a very bendy stretch of beautiful river, passing Old Woking and a pretty riverside Norman Church. We’ll end up back at Newark Priory, so a round trip paddle, no need for any car shuttles.          

As always, of course, we’ll stop in the local Inn for a sociable drink or two before the quick drive back up the A3.

Described as one of London’s “lost rivers” the River Mole is a River that we rarely get to paddle.                                     Insufficient water for much of the year and fiercely protected by local fisherman for the remainder.                          We start off at the sleepy Surrey village green in Brockham, close to Dorking and follow the moving current as the river twists and turns on its way towards the Thames.  A picturesque trip as we paddle right round the foot of Boxhill, which peers down above us.  We stop for a picnic lunch  at the base of Boxhill and then continue on probably finishing just on the outskirts of Leatherhead.

How’s about joining us on this year’s hunt for those elusive Chocolate Easter Bunnies ?
We hear that they’ve been sighted on and around the River near the historic Stopham Bridge
at Pulborough. This is probably the shortest paddle we do, we’ll initially set off for a very
short paddle through the rolling Sussex countryside then return to the elderly Stopham Bridge.
No doubt some slaloming fun through it’s seven ancient arches, which date back to 1423,
even before our Club Chairman was born & then a waterborne hunt for those tasty chocolate rabbits !
A short paddle further along brings us to a very gentle weir, after a picnic lunch, and maybe biting
the head off those chocolate rabbits we’ll then play around on the weir,
maybe a few races from top to bottom etc. before the short paddle back to Stopham Bridge,
and lo and behold there’s the fine Old wooden beamed riverside pub to round off the day !
A fun day for all levels of paddlers !
