Clothing and Equipment

Participants should be aware that taking part in outdoor watersports in Scotland in November requires appropriate kit and clothing to be worn, on and off the water. There are no drying facilities at Grandtully Station Campsite therefore participants should bring sufficient quality and quantity of kit/clothing, with the expectation that kit/clothing will not get dry during the event. In addition to paddling clothing please bring sufficient warm and waterproof clothing to last you through the weekend.


Questions should be communicated by an institution’s athletic union or students’ union staff member to the BUCS Event Coordinator, Harry Spinks
