Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a relatively new sport which has seen an increase in popularity especially during lockdown.Not surprisingly there has been a surge of interest in SUPs and iSUPs (Inflatable SUPs)at the club. It is an ideal way to get out on the water – especially on those warm sunny days when there is little wind for sailing. And it provides a pleasant way to get fit outdoors.
To support this interest we are looking to set up a group of members who might be interested in:
- Paddling on the lake(s) on a regular informal basis (Friday afternoons from 15.00 hours).
- Sharing tips and ideas on paddleboarding.
- Looking at trips to other locations to try out paddling on rivers etc.
- Opportunities for coaching to improve skills, self-rescue or even just getting started.
So far one small group (7 paddlers) met on 24th July in the afternoon at the training lake and did a few laps and yoga moves before venturing onto the big lake for a circumnavigation.
If you have a iSUP or SUP and are interested in getting out on the water please email me – Moira Hart- at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mobile number so I can add you to the weSUP@NCSC watts app group to keep you informed on when we are meeting and what is going on SUPwise.
This is open to Members only. Club members can use a SUP (assuming your membership is a water use category – ie not Social), you must be insured and have filled here and had it accepted.
Next SUP MEET UP will take place from 15.00 hours onwards on Friday 31 July 2020 at the Training Lake.
