Sat 14 Nov 2020 White-Water Warm-Up Trip
The final plan for this trip will depend on weather, river conditions and participants:
Plan A: Brynich to Brynich on canal and river – a chance for us to all warm-up and remind ourselves how to paddle, starting on the canal from Brynich to Brecon then back to Brynich on the Usk, with some easy white-water suitable for competent paddlers with some moving water experience.
Plan B: Grade 2-3 White Water on the Usk or Wye – only if everyone who wants to come is happy to go straight to some moderate white water!
Plan C: Usk Reservoir tour – only if the rivers are too high to paddle and it’s not too windy!
Timing is most likely 9.30am-3pm, although we won’t finalise this until we know who’s coming and where we’re going!
Paddlers will need their own transport to and from the start and finish points – and clothing suitable for the conditions as well as packed lunch / snacks / drinks and hand sanitiser! Club boats and equipment will be available to hire (£8 per person) but must be booked in advance – if you have your own, please bring them!
Numbers are limited, so RSVP as soon as possible and no later than Sun 8 Nov (using the button at the bottom of the website event listing or by e-mail reply) if you’d like to come along (even if you’re not absolutely certain at this stage). We’ll then be in contact about detailed arrangements.
