About the event
Meet at the Buckler's Hard Yacht Harbour car park at 12.00 ready for a 12.30 paddle briefing and launch.
We will paddle up the river reaching Beaulieu around high water, before heading back to Buckler's Hard. This is a fairly easy paddle in calm conditions (approx 5 mile round trip), with our main concern being to navigate around other water users during the busier summer months! Currently the forecast is for moderate south-easterly winds - this will mean paddling in to the wind on the return leg of the trip, so please ensure you have the stamina for this!
You can bring a packed lunch to have at the half way point, or wait until you get back to Buckler's Hard (probably around 14.30 depending on the pace of the group) and stop for refreshments at the pub! Please remember to bring plenty of water/fluids for the paddle.
Any updates or changes, which may be necessary if conditions dictate - will be published via the members area of the website.
