The Scillies trip has not proved possible for all sorts of logistical reasons. However, the Club can offer an inclusive sea kayak experience in September. In pre-Covid years we organised a standing camp at Tregedna Farm near Falmouth.  There is a write up of a previous trip on the BCC site, to give you an idea. The site is close to Maenporth beach and is a friendly, easy-going site. Facilities are basic but quite adequate. The plan is to be based there for up to a week, with people coming and going, as busy lifes allow.

There are two super estuary paddles for those who want to avoid rough water and the coast there is sheltered from prevailing winds. There is easy access to more challenging paddles, such as the Lizard Peninsula, Land’s End and the west coast is within easy reach. So, trips can be arranged to suit your preference, subject to leaders being available.
The draft dates are Wednesday 4th September to Tuesday 10th. The estuary options will work best towards the end of the period.
Camping costs are £12.50/person/night. Electricity is an extra £5/night. You pay for yourself to Ali on arrival and are responsible for your own catering. If camping is not your bag, Tregedna does have accommodation but you will need to arrange, if available. If you need Club equipment this can be transported on the trailer or you can carry it yourself. Costs are £7/day, £10 if you want it transported.
Let me know if you are interested in some or all of the period. Numbers may need to be limited by the leadership available.
