Quick Info

Suitable For: Anyone comfortable with paddling a canoe or kayak

Start: TBC, but expect an early start. Meeting at LOPC

The river dove is usually not open for paddling. Burton Canoe club host this event once a year. Its a pleasant paddle in pretty countryside on a river with a little flow and a few weirs, all of which are portage-able. 
Access to this river is very restricted, to paddle it is a privilege . This event, although an annual event, has been cancelled for the last two years, making it an even more rare opportunity.
It’s around 10 miles on a beautiful river with several weirs to shoot or portage, an opportunity to meet people from many other clubs, in fact, if it happens, one not to miss. However, It does have tricks up its sleeve!
You will need:
Weather appropriate clothing, ideally a dry suit or semi dry. The chances of swimming are fairly high. A change of clothes. Lunch, snacks, drinks, and a treat for teacher.
A spirit of adventure and an eye for beauty will add to your enjoyment.
We will meet at LOPC, load the trailer then drive up to staffs. on the minibus.
