Hairy Lemon Kayaking and Social Weekend

The long awaited Hairy Lemon weekend is back. So get ready for the social highlight in MCU’s calendar with a big fancy dress party on Saturday night.

For the kayakers the Hairy Lemon weekend offers the great opportunity to explore a different part of the river and run some new rapids. Kayak the Nile will be offering discounted kayaking lessons for beginners to advanced kayakers. For more details and sign-up click here to sign-up.

Non-kayakers are more than welcome to join – judging from last time there were definitely more people just enjoying a chilled out weekend than kayaking.
As the Hairy Lemon is an island, it is vital that you book accommodation and please note that the usual shuttle service is not available for Hairy Lemon weekends.

MCU Kayak Weekend- Hairy Lemon Edition

The long awaited Hairy Lemon kayaking weekend is back!

This is definitely the social highlight of the MCU kayaking calendar with a big fancy dress party on Saturday night. Non-kayakers are more than welcome to join – judging from last time there were definitely more people just enjoying a chilled out weekend than kayaking.

For the kayakers the Hairy Lemon weekend will give you the opportunity to run some of the other rapids further down the river. Make use of this opportunity as many of these rapids will disappear once the dam is built. Beginners are more than welcome and the stellar Kayak the Nile team will be offering lessons for the total beginners to the more experienced kayakers. Take a look here for more details on the lessons and MCU discounts. The sign-up sheet will become available after the last month’s lesson took place – so please do not sign up yet.

Accommodation:

As the Hairy Lemon is an island, it is vital that you book accommodation! You might be turned away if you don’t book as they have to organise food and the non-camping options will most definitely sell out.

Transport:

As this weekend takes place at the Hairy Lemon, it will not be possible to use the shuttle option. So you’ll need to organise your own ride! Please use the Facebook group to offer or ask for a ride – as usual please make sure to chip in for petrol. It should be around 25k per person there and back in a full car. The road to the Hairy Lemon isn’t the best especially not during rainy season, so using a 4 wheel drive is advisable.

Theme: “Human Drawings in Leggins and Hats”
So get a plain T-Shirt with markers and body paint ready!!!
It’s your choice to create your own drawings or to wait till the evening and let everyone else have a go in creating a human drawing out of you.
Spice up your costume with colourful leggins, a hat or any other accessory you seem fit for your human artwork.

Please let laurabierer@gmail.com know if you have any questions.
