Copeland Canoe Club... hosting orienteering at Ravenglass on three of England's Lake District estuaries.

Ravenglass Seaquest

Ravenglass Seaquest is a navigation event on the three beautiful estuaries of the rivers Esk, Irt and Mite at Ravenglass.

Competitors, in canoes or kayaks, teams or solo, visit as many control points as they can in the time limit of 3 hours. Orienteering! Only on water...
An event for everyone, take your time and enjoy lunch alongside the Esk, or set yourself a challenge and join the competitive racers.

After the race, prize-giving and refreshments will be in the Ratty Arms, behind the main car park in the village.

Seaquest 2018

Sunday 29th April was the date for Seaquest 2018, earlier than last year but things are very tide dependent. We had a great day with good weather and lots of participants!

Ravenglass Seaquest has previously donated to Living Seas NW, Cumbria Canoeists for Coaching support, Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team, the Great North Air Ambulance, First Responders, RNLI (St Bees Lifeboat)/ Maryport Rescue and Cancer Research UK.
We are supporting CFM "Cash for Kids" in 2018. Some of us are paddling from Roa Island near Barrow along the coast to The Mull of Galloway! The last section from Drummore to the Mull is "all" that is left, we hope to complete this by the end of the month. See Joe to contribute.


We launch from the beach at the seaward end of Ravenglass Main Street, Grid Ref: SD 084 962 but you need to move any vehicles to the car park (P&D) in the village as the tide comes right in, possibly to the end of the street!
Penalty points...
Some confusion has existed in the past regarding penalty points for being late:
