Venue: Paper Mill Lock (CM3 4BS)
Arrive: by 6pm
Launch: after 6.15pm briefing
Level: Competent river paddlers
Too much westerly breeze for low tide mean we’re back to the river for SUP Club this week – 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’re arrived and setting up by 6pm at Paper Mill Lock to gather at our ‘training zone’ – where we run our learn to SUP paddleboard lessons – by the entrance for a 6.15pm briefing ahead of a 6.25pm launch. Westerly breeze this week means we can go west again, to Stonham’s Lock and back.
As always, please ensure you are licensed to paddle the river (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’re going for dinner and drinks at our favourite local pub – we’ll do a show of hands for numbers at the briefing.
