(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.


The club is now open to everyone of all competency levels; should the Covid-19 situation change the club may have to return to placing a minimum competency level upon participants.
