Venue: Paper Mill Lock (CM3 4BS)
Arrive: by 6pm
Launch: after 6.20pm briefing
Level: Competent river paddlers
A building easterly breeze this evening means we’re back to the river for SUP Club tonight – where the wonderful Willow Set are kindly staying open late for us again, charging £3 from 5.30pm onwards when you use the password ‘SUPsect’ or flash our logo at the gate.
So please make sure you’ve arrived and are setting up by 6pm at Paper Mill Lock to gather at our ‘training zone’ by the entrance for a 6.20pm briefing ahead of a 6.30pm launch. Route TBC, most likely headed west but will depend on whether or not the easterly breeze fills inland. TBA at the briefing.
As always, please ensure you are licensed to paddle the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation (renewals via www.waterways.org.uk). Everyone licensed, with their own kit (including leash!) who can paddle confidently is very welcome… (Please though, if you’re not yet competently steering, stopping and turning, a busy group at SUP Club isn’t the place to learn these essential skills – we offer lessons for that!)
After, we’ll go for dinner and drinks at our favourite local pub – numbers via our traditional show of hands at the briefing.
