Our club has club lead river, sea and lake trips throughout the year. You will need to have your own equipment, and safety kit, although the club has 5 river kayaks and a sea kayak and kit to hire to members. Trips will take place in a variety of locations from lakes, Cumbrian coast, on one of the many great rivers around the area and further afield. We arrange weekend and longer trips for sea and river kayaking. Dates and arrangements for club trips are posted on the club calendar. We encourage all to be responsible for their own safety and carry safety kit appropriate to the level of trip that you participate in.
Our trips are: Lead by a member with BC award or equivalent and who is listed as approved leader by club. The leader may be supported by others who are willing to be directed. A risk assessment will have been done.
Club lead trips are: Lead by a club validated leader who will lead us safely through, but not necessarily offer coaching or instruction. It is very likely that there will be other very competent paddlers on trip, many have more experience than the leader. A group of friends heading out for a paddle. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water. More experienced paddlers may advise against paddling a particular rapid / weir /section on safety grounds. Maybe a cup of coffee afterwards
LCC members are encouraged to add or join trips (by RSVPing) on the calendar .
