CANCELLED! – DUE TO ADVERSE WEATHER WARNINGS !
It looks like another storm is due in for this weekend “Storm Dennis” and the met office is already predicting more heavy rain fall, flooding and risks of power cuts. For this reason, rather than wasting time with everyone packing up kit etc. we think it’s only fair to cancel the trip and inform the scout hut of our decision.
Date(s): 14th-16th February 2020
Time(s): We shall arrive on Friday and then spend all of Sat/Sun daytime paddling. Expect to be ready to leave the accommodation at 9am each day, as shuttles take a while and we want to ensure there is plenty of daylight and get off the water at a reasonable hour.
Type: Beginner/Intermediate White Water
Suitability: Confident with Capsizing with a Spray Deck [whilst not essential we highly recommend doing a White Water “Taster” first]
Location: North Wales
Accommodation: 1st Trevor Scout Hut, Heol Penderyst, Trevor, Llangollen LL20 7UD
(Note: If you wish to book your own accommodation you are encouraged to book aim to book somewhere around the Llangollen area)
Food: Please arrange your own Friday evening meal, breakfast, lunches and plenty of drinks. There will be an option of finding a pub/restaurant on the Saturday evening, or alternatively you can stay at the accommodation and cook your own food.
Come and join us for a white water trip to North Wales!
Paddling, Games, More Paddling and Fun! North Wales whilst seemly further to go than some locations has a great offering for white water paddlers.
Every effort will be made to ensure a good weekend of paddling, but please remember that it is a weather-dependent sport, so there are no guarantees!
The Tryweryn is a dam released river that feels natural, not to far from the Bala. It has a highly variable upper section with a more tame lower section. Often referenced as the Northern ditch due to its shallow nature, but a beautiful few sections all the same.
The river Dee is a classic North Wales run, holding water that is paddleable throughout the year it is probably one of the most frequently paddled rivers and navigates through the fantastic town of Llangollen which also has its highlights too offering a great view of town falls.
