WHAT TO WEAR
Come prepared to get wet - even if you don't fall in, you need to get in and out, which will involve paddling into the water. If it rains, you will get wet.
1. Wear clothing suited to the weather, air temp and time of day.
2. Wear clothing that when wet does not become a sponge (eg jeans, joggers, jumpers are a no go). Sports wear, leggings, moisture wicking fabrics etc are best. Aqua shoes or no shoes.
3. Bring a change of clothing...should you go for a dip.
4. Bring a towel.
5. Bring a waterproof kit bag or tub (useful to pop your shoes and spare clothes in during the session which can be left on the lakeside).
For the Halloween session, please do dress up...BUT to avoid filling our lake with random spooky items, please ensure your costume will not fall off...if you fall in 😉
