Tees Barrage

09/07/2016

Tees Barrage

Difficulty – Grade 3 (paddlers need to be of 3* standard)
When/where do we meet? 12:00 at Tees Barrage (TS18 2QW), it takes about 90 min from Sowerby Bridge so if you need to pick up kit or meet for car shares then 10:00 – 10:30 at the club depending on how much of a faff specialist you are.

What’s the plan? If you’ve not been before then there will be some form filling and photograph taking required before you get on the water. We’ll stay on the water until we’re cold/tired/bored or a combination of the above and then retire to either the cafe or the pub for some refreshment.

What is the course like? The top half of the course is easier grade 2/3 before things get more serious in the bottom half with some features that would probably class as grade 3+ on a river but the absence of pointy rocks and trees means that the consequences of swimming are not as bad. There are loads of videos on YouTube which will give you some idea of what it is like. Best of all there’s a conveyor belt so there’s no need to get out of your boat after each lap.

What do I need? All the usual paddling equipment and your boat must be fitted with air bags. There are lockers, showers, changing facilities and cafe on site and the fee to paddle is £8.25. There is a kayaking shop on site and boat hire/demo is available, contact http://www.nswatersports.com/ for details.
