Beginners Sea Kayaking/Bivvy trip 6/7 Sept PDF Print E-mail
Trip Reports - Sea Kayaking Trips
Written by Kennywpara   

Beginners 2 day bivvy/paddle, with Wayne Gibbons, Leonie, Sarah, Pete, Alice, Howell, Emlyn, Martin the flapjack, Sue, Russell, and Ken. Date 6/7 Sept 2014. Clubs represented were 3 NACC, 2 Clevedon CC, 2 AOAC, 2 Cardiff Dragons, 1 SACC, and 1 Bath CC

Day 1. Sidmouth to Seaton, then back to bivvy below Beer Head.

Day 2, Beer Head to Sidmouth, then to Ladram Bay, and return to Sidmouth.

Wayne suggested this route, one he has done before, and we all assembled at the slipway in Sidmouth in perfect conditions. Warm, a little hazy, tho the sun soon cleared, and the sea as calm as a millpond. The sea of course was at its warmest so this was definitely looking like a most benign trip to look forward to. My last couple of days before had seen some epic waters (for a beginner like me).

Trip Reports - Flatwater and Touring Trips
Written by Paul and Margarita   

Open Boaters: Nigel, Jack, Steph, Mark, Paul, Margarita

Kayakers: Tony, Sarah, Holly, Tom, Jeff, Charlotte, Sam

This trip started nice and early for most of us, no thanks to Nigel, who rolled up 30 minutes later, after having miss-communicated the intended meeting time. Ho hum, at least it was dry and warm; the sun was threatening to make an appearance.   After a quick car shuffle we set off along the Avon in 5 open boats and 7 kayaks. The river levels were low, which made for a placid paddle and plenty of chatting.

Posted on Behalf of Fran...


We all arrived at West Hook Farm at the same time – to be greeted by an ice-cream van.  (They must have seen us coming.)  Next morning, up at 6.30am and on the sea at Martin’s Haven at 8.10am.  Weather forecast looked promising – light winds to start increasing to f4 later, cloudy and warm.  The Haven was deserted.  Once launched, we ferry glided across the top of Jack Sound towards Middle Island.  The waves were white and a bit confusing, causing Phil to shout and swear to himself whilst crossing – to the amusement of Ralph and Mark.  Thankfully we all made it!
