External Suppliers / Washburn Cruise 2018 Calendar

Hi Meador,

The full 2018 Washburn calendar can be found here :

https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/regions/yorkshire/yorkshires-regional-development-team/washburn/washburn-calendar/

When I'm viewing it I have to scroll down past a few white screens before the calendar comes into view, so if it's the same for u just keep scrolling

And sorry if this sounds patronising , but I can't tell who u are from ur name 🙈, so just to make u aware in case u are a new paddler, that although it uses the word 'cruise' like its a little trip in the park.. The washburn's a grade 2/3 fast flowing narrow dam release river (sorry if ur a pro and it is like a trip in the park to u ) !

Hope this helps 😀

« Last post by Suzanne R on February 05, 2018, 07:55:17 PM »
Hi,
John and I have booked to go on this as it's a lovely area to paddle and seems to be great value. here is the link - http://www.southwestpaddlefest.com/
I've copied this from the website as a flavour of what's on offer - more detail are on their website.

There is an Early Bird offer if booked before 15 Feb and in addition, if several of us go we will be offered a group discount! Mention RCC when booking and let me know to!

WHAT'S' IT ALL ABOUT?

Basically it's about meeting up in the great outdoors, camping, enjoying a paddle, enhancing your skills regardless of ability, encouraging new people to the various disciplines and meeting new friends all whilst having fun and raising money for charity!

WHOSE IT FOR?

All kayaker's, canoeists, stand up paddle board enthusiasts, walker's, hiker's, campers, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, grandparent's and even the dog as long as it's well behaved. Encourage your friends, there's plenty to do and there's plenty of room!

WHERE IS IT BEING HELD?

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, Cornwall, PL10 1HZ situated on the breath taking South East Peninsula of Cornwall

WHAT'S ON OFFER? 

For the paddlers there will be a variety of water activities, skills workshops and guided trips catering for all abilities. "Have a go" kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle board sessions, specialist's in their field including our very own World Record holder Pete Bray from PB Adventures with his Atlantic Crossing kayak, a unique DIY kayak, canoe and SUP builder's display and a variety of paddle sport and outdoor commercial outlets. On Saturday afternoon there will be some fun racing for the kids and adults!

For the non paddlers, enjoy all that Mount Edgecumbe Country Park has to offer including 865 acres of Grade 1 listed landscape, Adventure Segway, Beaches an amazing coastal path, boat and ferry trips to the historic Plymouth Barbican and lots, lots more!

Within the festival we have our own dedicated camping field situated within the grounds of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park with on site toilet's and hot showers. Our own bar, communal fire pit and entertainment via "Girl Friday" (a local folk duo) on Saturday evening.

What's not to like?!
Suzanne
ps - I'm not on commission!
