Paddlesport Clothing

Lightweight shoes – trainers are not allowed (plimsolls are perfectly adequate).

For Summer

Shorts and t-shirts are suitable plus a cag (cagoule). Sun screen protection is also advisable as the water reflects the sun. A cap in the summer is essential.

For Winter

The sport of kayaking continues throughout the winter months!

You will need leggings, or long lightweight trousers. Essential items are a long sleeved thermal top; a warm hat and a waterproof cag. Lightweight waterproof trousers are also very useful.

Always bring a CHANGE OF CLOTHING, a towel and a plastic bag to take wet clothes home in. Your child can fall into the river (capsize) at any time and a complete change of clothing to go home in is essential. Dry clothes should be left in the changing room.
