paddling at shoreham

Post by rec1551 » Wed Oct 21, 2009 1:45 pm

As I'm new to Sea Kaying, I'm looking for 'safe' enclosed areas to paddle nearby( I live in East Sussex) to use over the winter and can see that Shoreham has a large area of tidal waterway. Is this an OK place to paddle and if so are there any preferred launch sites?

Come to the Cuckmere Haven.

Nice meanders - non flowing - Then main river - straight mainly - To the sea - depening on tides you get a nice ride out.

Reccomended - Joe.

Thanks Joe

I have kayaked at Cuckmere and down to Birling gap a couple of times since getting my sea kayak a few weeks ago - however due to my lack of ability and the 55cm beam of my boat, I make sure the sea is like glass before doing so! It looks like being a bit windy this weekend and so i thought of trying a more protected area.

However I think I might take my little SOT and play in the waves instead

Cheers

Rob
