Event Description

Grade 1/2 paddle down the river Dee from Glyndyfrdwy to horseshow falls and then down to Llangollen. The trip is around 5 miles, taking around three hours to horseshow falls. Once at horseshoe falls, there are two options a) paddle down the canal to LLangollen (recommended unless experienced paddler) or b) a peer group trip down Serpents tail (grade 2/3), past Eddylines (grade 2/3) (option to get out here) or paddle down town falls (grade 3/4) to llangollen.

Tess and Brian will be leading the group down the canal, but the option is available for the group to split at Horseshoe falls, if there if sufficient 'competence' and numbers within the group. We need to decide once we know numbers, conditions, etc

Meet at the club at 7am, as it will be a long day. Dress warm for both on and off the water. Bring a packed lunch, snacks for the water, flasks of hot drinks (as it can get cold during the lunch stop), spare clothes, etc.

Cool, I have never paddle above horseshoe falls so this will be another one to tick off the list.  Plus I was thinking this trip would be plan B for January if the Usk is empty so it will be good to have done it.
