Dale handling practice 8th August 2019

Type of trip: Sea
Level: Moderate
Paddler Level: All

Meet at:Dale council car park, probably free from 19:00. Meeting time: 19:00

Briefing and Launch time:19:15 (*Please note that it will be at the discretion of the trip leader as to whether or not any member who has not signed up and not attended the safety briefing is allowed to participate in this trip.)

Estimated Duration: 2 hours approx

Outline plan: Little bit of a carry to the water (sadly), launch in the relative protection of Dale and head out into choppier water to take advantage of the conditions and warm water for some boat handling practice in wind and wave and do some rescues. The wind should be onshore and the low fetch should limit the chop. Tall stories in the Griffin afterwards. If you need kit from the container (meet there 18:15) then please note it below - we won’t go otherwise.

Expected condtions: Low water MH: 19:02. Strong SE wind: 14-26kts, Swell:1-2ft from SW, 5 seconds.
