A very eventful weekend in Cornwall has been and gone for another year. If you couldn’t make it, here’s a brief account of what you missed!
We got away from the boat hard in record time thanks to Dousby’s genius and soon we were whizzing our way south and west toward Blandford and a very lengthy traffic jam. Eventually all vehicles found a way out via the back roads and undergrowth of Dorset and we arrived at the hut intact and ready to be greeted by Stabby’s tunnel of SUCC. The morning eventually came and proved beautifully sunny so we duly hit Perranporth beach with our shiny new club wetsuits and kit.
The new SUCCers got well and truly into their paddling even venturing out back for the breakers – great stuff! – then the cornish pasties and van faff came and went and everyone climbed back aboard the various musically themed buses for a well earned nap at the hut and some rather suspect food before the real fun began on Saturday night. The social secretaries had prepared a special version of pass the parcel to help our new members get to know the older club members that bit better!
We were woken up Sunday morning feeling much worse for wear. The only cure: more paddling! The big waves were few and far between on the Sunday but everyone seemed to come off the beach with a big grin on their faces and ready to sleep all the home to Southampton.
Next trip: the RIVER USK. Friday 19-Sunday 21 October.
