11th to 17th July 2020


This week we are increasing the number of hire slots and boats available to hire.

If you want to hire a boat you need to 

1) Make a booking for time with our instructors to get you ready to go on the water, and this also (where needed) books your changing room.

2) Book your boats.  Boats are booked for 2 hours but are allocated on a morning or afternoon basis. 


Changing Room Options

1) No changing needed.  For rowing boats, canoes or if you have your own wetsuits, and you either plan to wear them on arrival or do the shuggle behind your car...  

2) Private indoor Changing.  This is where you book a changing room for just over 3 hours in the morning or afternoon. The changing room will be cleaned before your arrival, its yours for just over 3 hours then we ventilate it and deep clean it before the next arrival.  We will have 1 indivdual changing room (sorry no shower), 2 family ones, 2 group ones and a disabled one (with a shower and a loo).  Please choose one that is just big enough for your group!  The disabled one would also suit a family or small group, we want to reserve it for disabled people or those with mobility problems initally, if it is the only one left it is ok for anyone to book it.  These will have simple locks on them, so you can leave your personal belongings if you wish at your own risk.  At the moment we are assuming this will be allowed, but we are waiitng for the detailed goverment guidance to confirm.  If we are not able to open indoor changing we will contact you to allocate an outdoor space and reallocate if needed.

3) Private outdoor tent changing.  A space in a marquee in the car park 2m by 3m.  These will be cleaned before each group and again are yours for the duration.  They will be equipped with 3 chairs and a some clothes hooks.  You can leave (non valuble) belonginings at your own risk but beaware that there is no lock or other security provided.  It may be worth bringing a spare towel or yoga mat to make the tarmac a bit more comfortable...  

In terms of timings,

  • we allow 5 minutes to issue your buoyancy aid and wetsuits on arrival, then
  • Allow 30 minutes for you to get changed.  This could be one person taking a while or depending on your group you could split into 2 halfs and get one half changed in 15 minutes then the other half.
  • We then have 10 minutes booked with one of our instructors to give you a briefing and sort out your boats.
  • You then spend 2 hours on the water and your changing room will be waiting for you once you finish.
  • We allow 30 minutes to get changed once you are off the water.
