Trips & Events

If you are interested in attending any trip then catch the organiser on the Thursday before at The House in the Tree (in winter) or the Lido (in summer).  If you can’t make the club Thursday night meet, you must contact the organiser before the Thursday  to let them know you are interested (all contact details are in the club newsletter).

Please note that the trips programme is a guideline – plans often change depending on water levels and who’s available.

Not sure what it all means? Check out this explanation of river grading. River guides can be found at www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk which is a top resource for all things paddling related or at www.canoewales.com which has the full text of Sladden’s welsh rivers guide online.

For a full list of slalom events, check out the Canoe Slalom website.

For those more technically inclined, an iCal version of the trips programme is available here.
