Tyne Tour weekend 2017 – 3rd -5th November

  • by

Do you enjoy paddling white water?

Have you taken part in The largest white water event in Europe?

The Tyne Tour is based in Hexham Northumberland over the weekend of the 3rd-5th of November.  The rivers are dam released from Keilder reservoir giving miles of river fun, come and paddle through the Northumbrian countryside.  In what I think is the most stunning time of year.  Including the infamous Wardens gorge!!!

The  ticket booking for the weekend will be  individually via the main website  There are many options for booking available, depending on the number of days you wish to paddle etc.   Once you have booked a place on the weekend register you attendance on the LCC booking page and Stuart will 

Personally I plan to arrive on the Saturday morning, meet anyone who wishes to join me on a peer group paddle from Barrisford to the Hexham Tyne green. This a grade 3 paddle and anyone who joins us should be capable of paddling at this level. 

This section is non portagable, that means if you decide to run it you can not get off the river until the get out. The Saturday evening I will pitch my tent  on the Tyne green then head into Hexham to eat, drink and watch the fireworks

On Sunday I plan to head south and paddle a section of the Tees depending on levels. 

Many options for rivers are also available,  the organisers are running some grade 1/2 trips bookable via the web site. 

With well over 1500 paddlers attending the area is busy, with this in mind, could you please inform us of your attendance via  the club  calendar booking page after you have ordered your tickets. This will ensure I can contact everyone and we can all meet up. 

Thanks,  Stuart Toulson
