On most Thursday evenings through the summer we arrange a coastal paddle on Southampton Water, The Solent or nearby, though we do avoid evenings when we would be getting on or off the water at low tide when the mud can be rather fierce.  Typically we try to meet at the start car park at around 7pm which means leaving Basingstoke at 6pm.  These paddles are weather dependant so please contact the organiser on Wednesday evening between 7 and 9pm to check the forecast and confirm the paddling venue.
