How’s about joining us for Two or Three days of Whitewater paddling in The beautiful Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains of South Wales.

About this Event

Following our last highly successful weekend in the Brecon Beacons (and our recent Summer Whitewater trip to North Wales) we’re returning again to the Brecon Beacons in South Wales at the end of October and hoping for more water this time around, for you to enjoy the Rivers we have planned for you.

This trip is designed for those of you that have undertaken a good few flatwater trips, are confident and competent in your paddling and now wish to progress onto Grade 2 -3 Whitewater or indeed other CAP member that are already competent on Whitewater but still want to join in all the fun of a CAP Whitewater weekend !

(For recent newcomers to the club who understandably are not yet at the right level, we may be able to add you on nearer the time if your paddling skills and confidence prove suitable but if not there will be a similar level of weekend, probably on Dartmoor, next March, so fear not, your chance will come !)

Saturday and Sunday will be aimed at our Whitewater newcomers and progressors whereas on the Monday we will try to run a more challenging trip for our Intermediate paddlers, stepping up to say a Grade 3 -4 River.

The Brecon Beacons are beautiful so even if you’re not up for an Intermediate paddle, why not stay on till the Monday anyway and enjoy all that the mountainous Brecon’s have to offer. (If enough of you wanted to undertake a flat water paddle we could maybe arrange a “group of friends trip” or possibly even hire a guide (at cost) to enable you to enjoy another day afloat. Failing that there’s plenty of Walking, Cycling, Pony Trekking, Waterfalls and lot’s more you could enjoy !

For many, the Monday is the start of the October Half Term week, if that helps you to stay on & include the Monday, packing more outdoor fun into your weekend ?

The trip will be led by our coaching team supported by other proficient paddlers.

I estimate the total cost of the trip to be approx.. £50 pp, for the two night stay or £75 for the three night stay to include, bunkhouse accommodation, hire of Club Boat and Kit, Dinner on Fri & Sun evenings, breakfasts and packed lunches.

We’ll enjoy a nice sociable Evening meal and drinks (at own cost) at a welcoming local Inn on the Saturday evening. Petrol costs to be shared equally amongst all.

IF we end up accepting higher numbers we may need to hire in additional Coaches in which case we will need to increase the cost per person to cover such costs !

We’ll be returning to a bunkhouse that we’ve used many times before on the Western side of the Brecon Beacons, a different bunkhouse to last time.

I do hope that you can join us, please enrol online and indicate whether staying till Monday or not ? We have plenty of room in our sole use bunkhouse but numbers may need to be limited on the River so please sign up soonest to ensure your place ..
