Sea Day Trip 1

Solent coastal edge trip. Saturday 16th March 2024

Detail of Trip

This is a day paddle along the North (mainland) edge of the Solent from near Lymington towards Lepe or the mouth of Beaulieu River . A Grade / Explore level or equivalent experience.

It will be a fun, easy going trip. Very safe and a great experience of sea kayaking adventure. Views of the Isle of Wight, and Needles in the distance. Launching and landing on the foreshore of the New Forest. Come on everyone lets get you guys out there on the sea!!

In order to get people , kayaks and kit down to Hampshire it will be necessary to have members who have cars and roof racks and can take boats. Logistics can be sorted out when we know who is coming. If you can advise me if your are able to take people and or boats/ kit please.

More details will be given by email on start time, launch place etc.

Who is this trip for?

It is planned to be a trip for ‘beginner’ sea kayakers and to enable them to get some time on the sea, not a river or estuary (however all levels of paddlers are welcome).

I will prioritise sign ups though for members who are needing to get going for this seasons’ paddling and who are seeking to get experience on the sea.

It may still be pretty cold so the correct clothing for this time of year is important. We can discuss this later.

All trips can only go ahead if the conditions of sea and weather permit and this can only be assessed in the few days before the day of the trip. There will be a Whatsapp group set up for those going and a on-line meeting on the Wednesday before the trip.

It might be a long day but worth it. (Getting boats from the arches, driving down to the New Forest. The drive there and back from the arches is about 2 1/2 hours.)
