Cuckmere & Exe Errata

Newsletter errata: the Cuckmere Tidal Tour & Exe Weekend are, of course, in October - not September as in the newsletter.  Apologies!

Responsible Paddlers Needed

Are you a regular Sunday morning paddler? Do you like to potter to the Malta Inn for a relaxing Sunday morning paddle?  If so you could be the person we are looking for.

We have a number of younger paddlers, who are all more than capable of paddling, but need some one or two to make sure they are safe and aware while on the water.  We have a number of members who already volunteer to look after the youngsters and we would like more to lighten the load.

It would require you to sign in the youngsters and take their membership card and parental contact details, make sure they are safe while on the water and then return them and their card to their designated parent or carer after the paddle.

It will mean that you have to wait with the young people when you are off the water, but all the parents / carers know they should be picked up at noon.  If you are interested please contact

Hope to see you on the water!

Legacy Fun

Some silliness at Lee Valley over the weekend - enjoy!


William Bligh, infamously-brutal captain of the HMS Bounty, was born this day in 1754.  Captain your very own boat at the pool session tomorrow - mutiny optional!

Faster Higher Stronger

The lazy days of summer are almost over: lying on the beach, eating sandy sandwiches and drinking full-fat Coke from a glass bottle.  Sadly, all that sunbathing hasn't done anything for our fitness, and with the supermarkets already stocking up with Christmas food, there's only a short window in which to get a bit fitter!  Why not come down to the Club one Friday night (6pm) and come out for a session with the racing team?  It's fun, friendly, open to everyone, and you don't have to be a marathon runner to get involved - there are people of all ages and abilities there, and tuition is available if you want it.  No need to book - just drop in!

SUPer Coaches!

Junior Paddlers - Card System

Junior Paddlers, and particularly parents of junior paddlers: please remember your cards when you come to the Club.  If you're not on the water supervising your child (16 or under) then you must give the card to one of our Responsible Paddlers.  They will not be able to paddle with us otherwise.  Please speak to our Welfare Officer, Catherine, in case of any queries.
