HPPCC club update

Dear Paddler

We hope that you have been enjoying the good weather and getting out and enjoying your paddling.
Following on from our really successful SUP beginners courses, Graham has offered three evenings (starting tomorrow – sorry about the short notice), as follow on sessions, which will offer coaching and the opportunity to get out on the River.
We also now have SUP sessions available to book on Saturday mornings.
As a reminder next Sunday we have a club trip on the Trent, using a minibus and the new club trailer, so you can turn up at the club, load your kit and be brought back to the club at the end of the trip.  Please sign up if you are interested through the club booking portal.
Also next weekend is the Explore course, two concentrated days of coaching to improve your paddling and support your progression, again sign up through the booking portal on the website.
This weekend sees SUP fest at the Watersports centre, so if you fancy seeing lots of people on SUP boards on the course then come and take a look.  Normal club sessions are happening this Saturday.
Last weekend paddlers who were at the club session found themselves with Thunder rolling all around them.  The advice from British Canoeing is clear that if you find yourself out paddling when there is Thunder, get off the water and seek cover.  If lightening hits the water then it can travel a considerable distance.
The club is promoting British Canoeing and the RNLI’s Safety campaign for paddlers
