What is it like?: I’m being deliberately vague here, not for a sense of mystery,
but because it will really depend on the water levels.
The trip I want to do is the LLugwy, a nice grade 2/3 with a couple of portages around
nastier bits! This starts by Plas-y-Brenin at Capel Curig. But if the water isn’t
there it’s a waste of time going. The back up plans would be the Tryweryn (if there’s
a release) or going to Mile End Mill in Llangollen – both of which offer good grade
If you are not sure whether you are up to this trip speak to the contact listed for
that trip who will be able to advise you further.
Where do we meet ?: At the club at 8am to load up / organise car shares. Obviously
I’ll let those who are coming know what the plan will be a couple of days before
when we know what river levels are likely to be.
What do I need ?: Normal paddling equipment (wetsuit / warm clothing and waterproof
top, buoyancy aid, spray deck, helmet). Note: wetsuit shorts are not appropriate
for a full day trip, please bring wind/waterproof trouser to wear over them.
Other Information ?: You mustcontact the organiser for further details and to agree
your attendance in advance of the trip.
We will also need a consent form/parents permission for any under 18's that want
to come on a trip. Download a consent form (pdf - 25kb) here
If you plan to come on a trip, you must contact the organiser in advance to agree
your participation in the trip- so we know who to expect (and make sure we wait for
you) and on some trips numbers can be limited. Also plans may change at a late stage
(due to water levels etc), so we might need to get hold of you to let you know.
