The club owns two NRS rafts and associated equipment. 

The process for rafting on club trips, and access to rafts by members for private trips, was updated in December 2019, and is described in the following documents:

Those who are wanting to make use of the club rafts please make yourselves familiar and follow the documents listed above. The process for self-assessment listed in the guidelines will be worked through with potential Club Raft Leaders in the New Year.

To access the rafts please email  with your verification and Raft Trip Plan and a committee member will sort out access to the rafts with you from there. Your patience is appreciated as we bed in some new processes.
