Sea Kayak Race Season

Postby Jimski » 7:43 am, 4th May, 2016

Sea kayak races are gaining popularity and are always sociable fun events.

5th June - The Ravenglass Seaquest is run by Copeland Canoe Club, it is a navigation / orienteering event on the three beautiful estuaries at Ravenglass. Competitors, in canoes or kayaks, teams or solo, visit as many control points as they can in the time limit of 3 hours. There are plans to make a weekend of it with the possibility of paddling round St Bees Head on the day before.

12th June - Coquet Island Race, Northumberland. The event is organised each year by the Coquet Canoe club, and consists of a 5.5 mile race out of the Coquet estuary, round Coquet Islend and back again. It is always a fun day with no-one taking things too seriously. Many just come for a paddle around Coquet Island, others for a race against their club mates. This forms part of a weekend trip which includes a chance to explore the wild and beautiful shores of Northumberland by sea kayak. If the weather and sea state are suitable we will visit The Farne Islands. Maximum of 10 places.

25th June - Conwy Ascent. The Conwy Ascent is an upstream canoeing/kayaking event, taking advantage of the flood tide to start in the Deganwy Narrows and finish at Dolgarrog Bridge approximately 15km away. The river offers many challenges in reading water and weather conditions and is rich in wildlife and beautiful scenery. The event is run by Dyffryn Conwy Paddlers and comprises both a marathon race and a tour, and paddlers may race or tour in any canoe or kayak of their choice. All paddlers completing the Conwy Ascent will receive a finishing memento. More information and entry forms - http://www.dmxl.co.uk/Conwy_ascent/

3rd July - Hilbre Island Race. Hilbre Island is the largest of a group of three islands at the mouth of the estuary of the River Dee, and lies about 1.6 km from Red Rocks, the nearest part of the mainland on the Wirral Peninsula. The main Hilbre Island Race goes clockwise around all three islands (13km) while a shorter race for General Purpose and touring boats goes clockwise around the first island (Little Eye). We also have a short junior and novice race along the shore to West Kirby and return. The event is run by Liverpool Canoe Club - http://www.liverpoolcanoeclub.co.uk/hilbre/
