Bouncy Boxing Day

A few Club Members managed to drag themselves up for a short paddle on Boxing Day to burn off some of the Christmas excess. Since we were all white-water paddlers, we opted for a short trip on the Usk from Talybont to Llangynidr. The river was higher (and bouncier) than we’re used to paddling it, so we sped along and completed the trip in just under 2 hours, despite inspecting both Grade 3 rapids (and recovering one swim). Thanks to Chris, Pete, Sam and Steve for making the effort!!!
