Friday 4th January

I am going to change the venue to the Leven and run the upper section ("the race course").

The first two rapids are straight line affairs, followed by a series of playfull ledges and then a more twisty grade 3 rapid close to the take out.

The last rapid can be avoided (or given a go) but should not put anybody off coming along
