Section for Longer boats Tuesday 27th Jan and 10th Feb

The Tuesday 27th January and 10th February pool sessions will have the far section of the pool roped off for those with longboats (touring and sea kayaks) to practice.  Members may bring their longer boats in the pool to use in this section if they wish. 

The rest of the pool will be used as normal.  The trailer will be brought as normal and the clubs bigger boats will NOT be brought along.  How much of the pool we will dedicate to the long boats will be decided on the night and will depend on numbers and demand.

Please remember that all boats and kit needs to be clean inside and out before going in the pool and also at the end of the night after getting changed please use the main exit of the leisure centre to leave by.  Please do NOT exit by the door by the pool where we put the kayaks outside.
