Sunday June 17th - Shotley to the Orwell Bridge


The trip is 8.7 miles which will take about 4.5 hours. High tide at the bridge is about 15.00.

Meet at the Bristol Arms Shotley front TM 2459 3361 for 9.00.

The shuttle should take about an hour. We aim to leave Shotley by 10.00.

The Butt and Oyster Pub at Pin mill TM 2063 3806 is 5.68 miles (3 hrs) paddle. It’s a Adnams pub and it would be sacrilege not to stop for a half.

3.02 miles 1.5hrs to the finish, need to leave 13.30.

Don’t forget to pull your boat up high, the tides coming in. Bring a plastic £5 or £10

There are 2 other lay-bys if this one is full.

Weather dependant. Should be 2* standard and able to do rescues.

The paddle is organised by Colchester Canoe Club for clubs within the Region. Once on the water, Clubs will be responsible for their paddlers and will be expected to provide Leaders as if it was their own Club Trip
