Instructions

What to Bring
You will need to bring suitable clothing to go afloat and get wet in. This means swimming gear, a wetsuit if you have one (don't worry if not, we have a number you can borrow), a complete change of clothes, and a towel! You will also need some old trainers / plimsolls / boat shoes for your feet. Jeans, wellies, flip-flops and bare-feet are not appropriate.

We will provide you with a buoyancy aid.

You will also need a packed lunch or money for chips! It is worth having a few snacks with you in-case we have a late lunch.

All courses are weather dependant, and therefore may be cancelled or rescheduled at short notice. If we do have to cancel a course it will be published on the group Facebook page, and you will be advised by e-mail, so please check this prior to travelling to The Den if the weather is not looking good.
