Location: South Wales, the final river details won’t be released until we know the weather/conditions nearer the event, however we are hoping to do a nice grade 2 river section on either the Wye or Usk. However if water conditions are very low, then we may use the alternative locations of Symounds Yat or Cardiff White Water Course which are still in the South Wales region.

Food: Please bring with suitable lunch, snacks and drinks and ideally a sealed tub and dry bag to transport them in.


Come and join us for a day out doing white water!!

  • The River Wye: The River Wye (Welsh: Afon Gwy) is the fourth-longest river in the UK, stretching some 250 kilometres (155 miles) from its source on Plynlimon in mid Wales to the Severn estuary. For much of its length the river forms part of the border between England and Wales. The Wye Valley (lower part) is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  • The River Usk: The river rises on the northern slopes of the Black Mountain, Wales, in the westernmost part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Initially forming the boundary between Carmarthenshire and Powys, it flows north into Usk Reservoir, then east by Sennybridge to Brecon before turning southeast to flow by Talybont-on-Usk, Crickhowell and Abergavenny after which it takes a more southerly course. The river consists of several small easy ledge drops and a few rapids.
