The coaches and leaders will determine a suitable paddle for members based on the skills & capabilities developed in the group on the previous days. It is quite likely, but will depend on the leaders / coaches and total numbers, that we might have two groups paddling, one on Upper Tryweryn, the other on Lower.

Accommodation:

This will be a camping trip and those wishing to participate should reserve their own pitches at Tyn Cornel Campsite which is on the banks of the Tryweryn and within paddle / walk from the National White Water Centre. https://www.tyncornelcamping.co.uk/

(We’ll setup camp on Friday afternoon after the Dee paddle.

A number of members participating will be taking large awnings so that should it be a rainy weekend we have somewhere to congregate.
