Dart Trip 2018

BCU Suffolk - River Dart Trip 2018

Wednesday 14th to Sunday 18th November

Price - £155/pp if booked before 30 Sept 2018 or £165 thereafter.

This trip is a long weekend of paddling on the fantastic River Dart. The River offers a mixture of scenic grade 1 to 3 waters and is an ideal trip for both novice and intermediate paddlers, whilst also a superbly enjoyable paddle for the more experienced.

The Cost includes accommodation from Wednesday 14th to Sunday 18th November in a bunk house, along with full board (from Thursday Breakfast to Packed Lunch on Sunday) and coaching on the river. The programme is developed to meet the needs and aspirations of the group, although it is also clearly dependant on water and weather conditions.

Paddlers will need to:-

a) have a at least a basic level of competence at around the 2* level.

b) provide their own equipment including Boat, B'Aid, Paddles, Spraydeck and clothing to keep them warm in November, even if they fall into the river. If in doubt, please discuss with Adrian when booking.

c) A sense of fun as we generally have a great time learning and playing on the Dart.

The Accommodation for 2018 is in a different location compared with previous years. This year we will be staying at Buzzard Barn, just south of Buckfastleigh.

Notes Re Types of Boat:

In 2016 we had a big contingent of Open Canoes on the Trip (See Pictures). Last year the trip was predominantly Kayak based. The coaches leading the trip are equally comfortable in both craft, so if you wish to develop your Open Canoe skills please tell Adrian when booking and we will make sure we bring a few Open Canoes along as well as Kayaks.
