Meet at LOPC to load up. Then we are off to the Dee (Llangollen). We will get on below horseshoe falls and have some fun!
 
If levels aren't suitable we will switch to another appropriate river.
 
We will take the minibus as long as we have appropriate numbers for it. One other vehicle will go to facillitate a shuttle.
 
Bring a packed lunch. We are likely to for some food on the way back - this may be a pub meal or fast food depending on group preference and time.
 

Who can go / What do you need?

 
There is a limited amount of space available, based on the amount of leaders we will have.
 
In terms of ability, You'll need to have a bit of moving water experience. E.g. the Nene, Tyne Tour or similar. Ask if your unsure.
 
Whilst we always try to be as inclusive as possible with trips, there are a few limitations on this trip:
1. You need to be confident on moving water, if you came to Tyne Tour and felt comfortable enough for a (small) step up that's ideal. Its a grade 3 trip, but everything can be walked around.
2. You should own or be able to borrow winter paddle clothing *
3. You must have airbags in your boat. Preferably bow and stern, but at least stern.
 
We have a limited number of club boats and helmets available. Please specify what you need on your booking.
 
* this means a drysuit, dry cag + dry trousers, or (at a push) a GOOD wetsuit and cag. You will be on the water all day, and it will be cold. If you get too cold, one\some of the group will take care of you, but its the end to their days paddling, so its important we start on the right foot. Ask around, members may loan their kit. As always, a helmet and BA will need to be worn at all times on the river.
 

Cost

Trip cost including a seat minibus (first booked gets them!) is £5.
