14 June 2015 – Thames and St. Patrick’s stream
A gentle 5 mile circular paddle up the Thames from Wargrave, lock portage, riverside picnic and return down a beautiful side stream with Matt. 3-4 hours.
Currently it looks like there will be no coach on this trip, so for paddlers capable of looking after themselves on grade 1 moving water. Meet at 10.30am at the lay by by the green on the right after Val Wyatt marine just before entering Wargrave on the road from Henley and bring a picnic. See the trip map on Paddlepoints for St Patrick’s Stream and the Hennerton Backwater, except we won’t be paddling the Hennerton Backwater.
For more information please contact Matt.
20-21 June 2015 – Upper and Lower Tryweryn Trip
If you are happy on the legacy course at Lee Valley the Upper Tryeryn (grade 3) shouldn’t be a problem. The Lower Tryeryn (grade 1 and 2) is less difficult and perfect for practicing ferry glides and breaking in and out with a grade 4 drop at then end which can be portaged easily. Some may only want to paddle the Lower.
27-28 June 2015 – Symonds Yat Trip
Symonds Yat is a grade 1/2 set of rapids and an ideal introduction to moving water, this is the first place many learn to paddle on moving water and it is perfect for it – with added bonus of nice pub food and cream teas nearby!
