As a club we paddle a lot on the Avon and have paddled most stretches from Chippenham to the Cumberland Basin on varying club trips over the last few years, but we have not ventured further downstream as a club for a while. So here is your chance for a summer weekday evening paddle from Shirehampton to the Cumberland Basin and back, passing under the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Meet 5:30pm at the Lamplighters pub in Shirehampton. On the water for 6pm, HW is about 7:15pm.

4.5 miles each way with tidal assistance will take about an hour each way. If we time it right the Cumberland Basin lock gates may be open and we could get out of the boats and have a short break in the Cumberland basin.

I am sorry, the meeting time of 5:30pm is quite early for those that work. The Wednesday evening would have been better with HW just after 8pm, but I did not want to clash with the Saltford evening. 

People that cannot make the 5:30pm meeting time could meet us on the water at 7:15pm in the Cumberland Basin and do the return leg with us. We would most likely be able to shuttle a few people and their boats back afterwards.

Bring some money, as there is a possibility that the Shirehampton Sailing Club might want to charge us a launching fee for using their slipway.

Suitable for touring boats, sea kayaks and canoes. Club has canoes and sea kayaks for hire.
