Abbey Point Slipway to Railway Pier Return

Canoeing & Kayaking is an adventure sport. When you go canoeing follow the five points below to stay safe:
Planning -
Plan your trip well in advance by consulting with the Blueway website and local providers.
Experience -
Ensure the Blueway is a suitable match for your group’s experience. Water can be dangerous, if you are inexperienced use a local guide and seek formal training.
Conditions -
Consult the weather forecast and tide tables in advance of your trip and if unguided only go out in favourable conditions, clear days with low wind.
Equipment -
Always wear an approved buoyancy aid. Ensure your boat has adequate buoyancy. Bring suitable clothing, such as a wetsuit and equipment to deal with an emergency.
Emergencies -
In the event of capsize, stay with your craft, be ready and equipped to help one another. Always bring some form of communication with you, ie mobile phone - VHF. Ensure your group has a towing system in place.
