Date(s): 19th-21st June 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.
Suitability: All Levels and Mixed Types of Craft
Location: South Wales in the Wye Valley
Accommodation: The club shall be using Byecross Farm Campsite, Moccas, Preston On Wye, Hereford, Herefordshire , HR2 9LJ for both days (alternatively you can book your own accommodation nearby)
Food: Please arrange your own Friday evening meal, breakfast, lunches and plenty of drinks, and ideally a sealed tub and dry bag to transport your lunches in. On the Saturday evening if the weather is good we shall plan to go to local shop to obtain BBQ food each or otherwise find local pub/restaurant or alternatively you might like to just cook your own food.
A perfect trip for getting out there and paddling with the whole family or as an individual. The trip is a relaxed, flat water trip, suitable for all skill levels and craft types in the beautiful Wye Valley. The river itself is perfect for beginners, being that there’s many opportunities to try out some of the skills that you may have been practising at the lido. Plus the scenery throughout the two days is awesome.There are numerous options for paddling, including the infamous Symonds Yat rapids. The trip offers opportunity to travel a good distance each day subject to the group if you are still relatively new to Paddlesports it is worth considering use of a touring kayak or doubling up in an open canoe.
Do you like a Challenge? If there is sufficient interest its possible to extend the trip to complete the Wye 100 Challenge.
We are currently phasing the return to club activities and 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.
