    You should be a reasonably confident paddler for this trip, although it is an easy paddle it is a journey with some upstream paddling involved on the way back. Paddlers should feel that they are confident at paddling 4-5 miles

    What to bring

    Bring a lightweight waterproof jacket and waterproofs if you have them, a dry bag with a small snack ( if we don’t make it to town for a snack/ drink )


    We will be meeting up at the parking near the River at Grantchester where we will then paddle downstream towards Cambridge. We hope to have a rest stop (We can arrange our rest stop near the backs for coffee shop pubs or a light picnic in town subject to paddlers requirements and availability) We will then paddle back upstream towards Grantchester.
