Many of our members sail two handed boats and there is always a need for crews, so by making this your first step it will ensure you get on the water from day one.
Getting Started: For your first trip on the water, you may get at least damp so bring a change of clothes, not forgetting dry underwear & footwear. Whilst on the water its best to wear comfortable layers and avoid jeans which hold the water meaning that you will rapidly chill in the wind. On cooler days gloves, scarf and a hat are useful. If rain threatens a waterproof top is recommended (and trousers you have them). Footwear should provide grip and be prepared to get wet. Some members wear high tech breathable gear, dinghy boots and even wetsuits but investment in these is not necessary for the river. Buoyancy aids can be borrowed from the Club as we have a range to suit all ages and sizes.
