Tryweryn Trip - Bank Holiday - April 29th to May 2nd 2016

There will be a club trip to the Tryweryn for the first May bank holiday weekend. For those of you who don't know, the Tryweryn is a dam release river in North Wales. The upper section is grade 3/4 and the lower section is mostly grade 2 with some grade 3 and one very easily portagable grade 4. The lower Tryweryn is a great section for paddlers with a little moving water experience. 

Please let me know if you would like to join us and I will try and book Tyn Cornel campsite for the weekend. Tyn Cornel is very convenient for the river. It can still be quite cold at night in May, so make sure that you have warm bedding.
For those of you who need someone with you on the water, Bill and I will be happy to take you on the lower section for a run down each day. The timing will depend on when we are able to run a shuttle with the cars. We will be able to work on river running skills and enjoying the river. You will then have the remainder of the day to watch the other paddlers (there is a footpath alongside the upper section) or to go off and enjoy the Welsh countryside. It's important to make sure that everyone has some time to paddle at their own level.
