Booking will be made available to club members from the above date. If there are free spaces, they will be opened to non-members 3 weeks prior to the trip.
Payment must be made in full within 2 weeks of booking. If no payment is received, you will be removed from the list. This is to ensure a level playing field for all and to stop trip space blocking.
Return of monies due to cancellation is at the discretion of the committee and a decision will be made depending on individual circumstance.
We will be paddling Grade 2/3/4 rivers on this trip and the trip has been graded whitewater improver/intermediate. To assess your suitability for a trip please read this description. If you have any doubt please talk to the lead paddler.
Please note that river levels can change dramatically dependent on water levels and therefore it may not always be possible to support a paddler safely on a river in all conditions. Remember that others may have to support you on the river too.
The lead paddler’s decision will take in as many risk factors as possible and will depend on an individual’s ability to take part and recent/known experience. The lead paddler’s decision is final as to who can/cannot take part. We support paddler progression but this must sit alongside our responsibility to you and others to have an enjoyable but above all safe paddle.
Rivers to be determined on the weekend, subject to weather conditions. Possible rivers are the:
