Date: Saturday 18th August
Meet time: 11:00am
Meet location: car park at Queenborough N 51 deg 25 mins, E 0 44.5
Distance: approx 8 miles (with some tidal assistance)
Boats: any boat is suitable for this trip, (it will not be a fast paddle)
Food/Drink: Bring packed lunch and drinks
Coaches: various from Maidstone CC
Organiser: Geoff Orford email@example.com
What’s there: Burnwick Island was used as a dump for bottles in the 19th Century and the remains (not all broken) can be found lying on the beach but excavating for them is damaging to the environment. The Island is mostly covered at high tide but there are some ruins of barrack buildings that can be paddle through. Quite an interesting paddle and not too demanding.
No restrictions on numbers.
