Maiden voyage

A self-supported trip created by Pinkpaddler

Trip Overview

My local Kyak group advised St Cryst Church, Storehouse for the first ever launch as it has two lovely canal side jetties and is only 4ft deep should i fall in i could stand up in mud/silt. This route was perfect for me and absolutely serene. Quietly paddling along getting use to tracking with no current to battle, i soaked in the view and got close to wildlife. Truly beautiful! I will revisit but they are about to close the road and canal footpath for a while to do urgent pipework.

Safety Notes

Very safe as no currents and regular dog walkers, cyclists and joggers to help if needed.

Gear Notes

Kyak, paddle, float, mobile phone in waterproof pouch


Sunny, calm
