OCA Cumbria Easter Meet

We are very sorry to announce that we have had to cancel the OCA Cumbria Easter Meet.

We do not, at this stage, have enough bookings to make the event financially viable.

We felt that it would be unfair on all the people who have offered workshops, and supported us in other ways, if we did not give them a reasonable amount of notice to make other arrangements for the Easter weekend.

It was a hard decision make.

We will however be running some trips and events.

These are provisional details:

 Friday April 19th Fast boats and Bent paddles with Alistair Hornby .Lancaster Canal. Half day. 3 places. £15 per person..

Friday April 19th Introduction to moving water with Pete Montadon. Half day. 4 places.£15 per person.

Sat April 20th Leven Estuary Trip with Mac Knowles - on a big Spring tide. 6 places. £25 per boat.

Saturday April 20th   Expedition Navigation skills with Simon McElroy – for those of you who want to expedition independently on Scottish lochs and sea lochs, or Northern Ireland Loughs and waterways. An on-the-water day, followed by a beach BBQ, and then a night navigation experience. 8 places. All inclusive price £45 per person.

Sunday April 21st.  Ravenglass estuaries - also a big tide, but 1 metre less than on the Saturday. A peer trip .8 boats.
