White Water Trips
White water paddling in the UK is dependant on rainfall to bring the rivers up to a suitable level The decision on which section of a river to paddle on Club trips will be made on the day based on the weather forecast and on water levels. Whilst we will do our best to find sections at a suitable level, if the river levels are too low, paddling may be abandoned to avoid environmental damage. If river levels are high either paddling may be abandoned or less experienced paddlers may be told not to paddle.
River Dart Weekend 2019
1st - 3rd February 2019 - only a few spaces left

Upper Wye Weekend
1st - 3rd March 2019 - Fully Booked
The Upper Wye has various sections that can be paddled depending on water levels. The upstream sections are LLangurig through Marteg and on through Rhayader to Newbridge. Lower down, Builth Wells and down to Glasbury are easier but can be more sporting when the rain has brought the water levels up a little.
