Club Subscriptions for 2017
Many thanks to those who have renewed. Those that haven't are reminded that their subscriptions are due for renewal now.
Spring has arrived but it is still cool out there! The sea temperature is roughly 9 - 10C, Lakes a little warmer... It can still be cold in windy conditions so please ensure you have enough clothing to keep you warm and carry safety gear as well as food / drink... The sun is strong enough to give some skin damage so take sun cream with you! The Midges have arrived on their holidays from Scotland... Be careful out there...
Please check websites / facebook groups for information before paddling!
