This is a park and play trip to Mile End Mill on the River Dee. It's a great place to develop your white water skills and become more confident on the water.
We'll park at JJ's (just off the A5 in Llangollen). It will cost is £5 to get on the water, which includes parking and the use of changing rooms/showers. There is a cafe on site for that pre-paddle caffeine boost, for those that need it!
Who Can Come?
We will have to see what the water level is like nearer the time, but I would expect the river to still be quite low which makes it suitable for those for you who are still fairly new to white water. At the very least you need to be able to capsize with a spray deck on and not afraid of getting wet. It would be preferable if you have done other rapids/weirs like the Symonds Yat/River Wye. If you're unsure speak to one of the coaches.
You can see the current water level on the EA site:
It is likely to be cold, so make sure you have warm clothing and a water proof top. If you have a wet suit then bring it.
You will need a warm change of clothes for when we get off the water.
Kit can be borrowed from the club, but please make sure you book it in advance with Tess.
