We do have a limited amount of equipment if you want to borrow a boat, paddle, deck or buoyancy aid.  You will need to make arrangements to transport any equipment borrowed, if you cannot take it yourself.

All borrowed equipment needs to be returned, washed/cleaned to the pool by the following Saturday.

If you are interested in coming along then please email: bcctripcoordinator@braintreecanoeingclub.co.uk

On a safety note, any children will need to be accompanied by a paddling adult and a Parental Responsibility form will need to be signed and handed in on or before the day (see website).

Kit list (other than the obvious kayak, and paddle):

  • Buoyancy aid – you will not be allowed to paddle without one
  • Spray deck (optional, but recommended)
  • Dry cag / trousers (something to keep out the wind/rain)
  • Footwear (wetsuit boots or old trainers)
  • Food (e.g. sandwiches/snacks/cereal bars – remember it has to fit in your kayak)
  • Drink (e.g. water, energy drink, thermos)
  • If sunny, possibly a hat/sun cream

We look forward to seeing you on the river.

Happy Paddling!
