Aranmore Donegal - 9th 10th September

Aranmore co Donegal

Hi Everybody,

Don't forget about the Aranmore weekend trip coming up on 9th and 10th September. It's a most wonderful venue for kayaking and if we get the weather it will be great. Now is the time to book the hostel which is practically on the beach on the island and it would be fun if a good gang of kayakers booked it. But there are lots of B&B's and there is free camping all on the island.

The ferry runs every couple of hours from Burtonport and will take kayaks but the paddle out is nice and is only about a half hour trip in most weathers. The area has really nice paddling even in fairly bad weather and hopefully we will have enough experienced people so that we can have trips for two levels, experienced and not very experienced. Please try to whip up a bit of support, the more the merrier, provided, of course, that people have a minimum of level 2 training, a proper boat and safety equipment.

The plan for this meet is to convene outside the hostel on Aranmore on Sat 9th Sept at 10.30am. Accomodation is entirely up to the individual, either hostel, b&b or camping. The trips available on the weekend will be dictated by the weather and by the numbers showing up. Last ferry over on Friday eve is at 8.30pm & last ferry back on Sunday is at 5pm. This is the BLUE FERRY

Cheers,
Chris

This meet is officially cancelled due to the prevailing weather conditions. Some of us who have booked accomodation etc will still travel although any paddling done will be on a strictly peer paddle basis

Cheers,
Chris
