(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.


An excellent course that’s well worth doing, based over two FULL days, spent both in & out of the water. Ideal for those getting into White Water & those that would like to refresh their rescue skills, too. It’s one of the courses that we recommend any club member who dabbles in moving water to participate on.


At times when club activities are able to operate, participants shall be expected to self-assess at what stage they can suitably return, and only return if the current stage we are operating at applies to them. The club may increase or decrease the reopening stage at any point so please check back against the event or guidance to check the stage on the day before arriving at any activity.

  • Read the Blackwater Valley Canoe Club COVID-19 Guidance
  • Adhere to the latest social distancing and official government advice
  • Read the latest Event Booking Terms regarding club activities
  • Read the latest Hire Terms regarding club equipment hire and usage
  • Respect venue procedures

  • Keep to 6 per group (including those on the bank)
  • Can play contact games of canoe polo with up to 7 players (5 with 2 subs) each side and 2 referees (but during training remain in your team bubbles)
