Scotland Hypemas Day 6

Posted 4mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Evening paddlers,

The final reason to come on this trip is that you will get to use the same boat for the entire trip! This will give you the chance to work on your paddling skills and no more having to adjust the fitting each morning.

Scotland Hypemas Day 5

Posted 4mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Good evening paddlers (attempts to do a Scottish accent),

The fifth reason to come on this trip is the river Etive. This is one of the best rivers and lots of boaters want to paddle this. We will hopefully get to paddle this amazing 2.5km of drops and waterfalls. This river will be one to remember.

If you haven’t had enough, here is another video for you: https://youtu.be/nRGy5p_d88M

Scotland Hypemas Day 4

Posted 4mth 28d ago by Dan Collier

Hi paddlers,

The next reason for coming on the trip is another off-the-water reason. 

We will be staying in two different bunkhouses across the 10 days. The best bit is that they actually have beds! We will first go to Glenbeg Bunkhouse and then stay at our favourite Great Glen Hostel. 

This year we will also be driving in cars, which means you may get to influence the music your driver plays!

Here's another video for you: https://youtu.be/-TrRSnnH3GA

Scotland Hypemas Day 3

Posted 4mth 29d ago by Dan Collier

Howdy paddlers,

The second reason for coming to Scotland is the chance to get your very own Scotland 2022 t-shirt! These have been created just for you based on the super-secret theme.

There is also the chance to be creative each day as one or more lucky people will get the chance to strawbridge a fellow member. If you are not sure what strawbridges are, have a look below for some inspiration!

Scotland Hypemas Day 2

Posted 4mth 29d ago by Dan Collier

Evening paddlers,

The second reason to come to Scotland is the social night. Whilst each night is Social, one night, in particular, will be a designated social night.

Did someone say social night!! Just what you will want after another day of paddling. 

It is a (semi-)memorable night, with new club stories being created. Social night takes place one night in the second bunkhouse where the club's own-brand eliminator will take you to a whole new dimension. Costumes are mandatory (given the high level of pop costumes over the past year, expectations are high). The tour theme shall be revealed after sign-ups.

Scotland Hypemas Day 1

Posted 4mth 29d ago by Dan Collier

Hypemas Alert!!

Merry Hypemas, may the festivities begin! 

The best reason for coming on this trip are the rivers, where you will get the chance to paddle for 8 days! These rivers will give you a chance to improve your paddling skills while having a great time. 

Last time the club paddled the Findhorn, Spean, Garry, and Etive, and will be looking at paddling these again as well as some new sections!

Scotland 2022

Posted 4mth 29d ago by Dan Collier

Sup paddlers,

You may or may not have heard some of our members talk about a place called Scotland. After a long-awaited 2 years, we will be making our way back up north to some of the country’s most exciting rivers. Over the next week, we will be going through the 6 days of hypemas, giving you many reasons to come on the trip! 

To get your taste buds going each day will include a video from the previous times the club went to Scotland!

The trip will cost £285, which covers travel, accommodation, kit, and a themed t-shirt. You may be asking what the theme is…well it’s up to you to figure that one out.

Sign-ups will take place at 7.55 pm on Monday 14th February. There will be a group of us at the Duck beforehand, so feel free to come along and take part in the chaos that will be sign-ups.
