Tuesday evening Breakaway Trip to Sugar Boat – Booking Needed
May 22 @ 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Fancy a wee change from the loch session for your Tuesday evening paddle. This summer we aim to have a few “breakaway” trips available on selected Tuesday, whether to river, loch or sea.

Why not join Alan Rollo on a trip to the Sugar Boat on the River Clyde  as a breakaway group head off to the Firth of Clyde for a Club Night Paddle (Grade A).

Meeting times to be confirmed with the trip leader. Spaces are limited so book in advance by contacting Alan Rollo (Club Contacts 🔒 ) . If there is no space left then don’t worry as the Loch session will be running as normal . These trips will be running with time limits due to light etc and would suit people with a bit more experience of the environment. If in doubt it is best to go on a day trip.  You can find out more at Grades before contacting the trip leader.
