Hi All,

I am planning a trip on the River Cam through Cambridge and the famous 'Backs' for Sunday 9th June.

Suitable for all types of kayak/open boats this is a very scenic paddle through beautiful countryside and historic Cambridge.

Bring along wives/kids etc if you wish, they will love it.

Please let me know below if you'll be coming along. Further info regarding time and meeting point to follow.

Mike.

TRIP INFO:

Meeting at Byron's Pool Nature Reserve, Trumpington, Cambridge, CM2 9LJ.

There is a car park here on the left before reaching the bridge along Grantchester Road. If the car park is full we can drop off the boats and park further up along the road.

Meet at 10am to be on the water around 10.30am

Paddle through the countryside, through Grantchester Meadows and into Cambridge, through the Backs and past all the colleges and on up to Jesus Green for lunch/drink /picnic. Maybe strawberries & cream?

Then paddle back to the start point to pack up and leave...perhaps a stop at a local pub for those who want to.

Hoping many of you can make it 🙂

Mike.

I won't be going on this paddle, however if a club member wants to borrow my open they are welcome. Collect and return. You will be able to pick it up Saturday after 1600.
regards
John

    I all ways said to my self when I went back to Saunton next door to Woolacombe I would go back with a Surf Kayak.

    Last time we were there was with my old G3 which worked well. Plus looks like weekend are my own (know Kids)
