Sea kayakers – New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display – Shotley/ Essex

I happen to be on the East Coast for New Year and wondered if anyone would like to join me on this trip organised by Nomads, a local canoe club .  Please note, this trip is weather dependent – and Essex is a long way to travel, to sit in a pub, if conditions are unfavourable!

Nomads describe the trip as:

A short distance night paddle launching from Shotley Sailing Club.  Launching from Shotley Sailing Club at 22H00 (10pm) we paddle across to Harwich Harbour and past the RNLI base & on to ‘Essex Way’ beach for a short stop & a hot drink.

We return via Felixstowe container terminal to bring in the New Year with the sounding of the ships horns. An amazing experience being on the water, surrounded by so many large commercial vessels all sounding their horns simultaneously!!

Price £40 includes sit-on-top, buoyancy aid & paddle plus chemical light. This is a guided tour and sea kayaks are welcome.

Open to Edge members 2 star and above (we’ll transport our own sea kayaks if sufficient interest, which may be reflected in the price).  This is a popular trip and places are very limited. Further details, email
