Dart Trip 2019

BCU Suffolk - River Dart Trip November 2019

Wednesday 13th (eve) to Sunday 17th November

Price - £185/pp

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 13th to Sunday 17th 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*/Explore 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, Tim or Peter when booking.

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

As per last year, we will be staying at the superb Buzzard Barn, just south of Buckfastleigh.

Notes Re Types of Boat:

In 2018 we had a contingent of Open Canoes on the Trip as well as kayaks. The coaches leading the trip are equally comfortable in both craft, so if you wish to develop your Open Canoe skills please tell us when booking and we will make sure we bring a few Open Canoes along as well as Kayaks.
