A paddle for all CVCC members on the Thames taking in Hampton Court. Just under 8 miles round trip.

The trip will be for SUP and kayak. There will be a bit of dodging other boats of all sizes. Plus a lot of swans!

We will be paddling from YMCA Hawker to Hampton Court and back. Last year, it was about a 2-hour paddle up, then a picnic stop for lunch outside Hampton Court, and then a 1.5-hour paddle back. So we don’t need a shuttle.

Parking is free at the YMCA, but it is the park and ride for Kingston so can get busy after 8.45.

It is then a short portage to a slipway onto the river. We will meeting at 8.30am to get on the water for 9.00.

Get out at Hampton Court is via a shallow mud beach so very easy.

There are toilets at the YMCA. There are toilets, cafe and pubs near Hampton Court.

You can read a blog report on our trip to Hampton Court last year here.

If you need to borrow any club kit, please complete an Equipment Loan Form and return it to the Equipment Officer. Email to:, but please be aware that you will need to be able to transport this yourself. We would need at least 2 weeks notice to ensure appropriate vessel is selected with necessary gear (BA, Paddle, Cag, etc) and is adjusted. Collection can be arranged closer to the date.

N.B. Please book a place just so we know who is coming and so we can communicate with you if the weather is bad and the paddle cannot go ahead.
