SUP Club 2018 – Paddle to the Pub!


The twenty-seventh SUP Club of the 2018 season, Wednesday 3rd October 2018.

We’ve not done it since the pre-season, and the weather and tides look doable (7.17pm high @ 5.1m with a dying north-westerly breeze) so we’re going for a shorter paddle to Old Leigh tonight, then heading back from the pub in the dark! Meeting at Chalkwell (SS0 8JH) from 6pm (when the parking charges end for the day!) we’re looking to launch at 6.20pm – shortest first and fastest last, as ever, but not by a long way as we’d like to keep it grouped up and take it nice and easy tonight! Then it’s 2.5km into the sunset and a bit of breeze to Old Leigh, where we’ll get out at The Crooked Billet for a swiftie on the sea wall before lighting ourselves up (we know we keep banging on about it, but there’s always one so please no bright white lights. Ideally red or green; they’re for visibility, not illumination at the expense of everyone else’s night-vision…) then paddling back to Chalkwell in the dark. Sorry, no hire kit – and although we’re not going far or fast, we are heading home in the dark, so definitely confident paddlers only! After, we’re hoping the Billet might be able to accommodate us for dinner – we can ask when we get there…
