Improvers River Trip - Cancelled

Event details

Update: 28/04/2021 - Very little water about and very little forecast.  I don't expect the rivers to come up enough to paddle.  Rather than leaving it to the last minute on the vague hope that a deluge befalls us, I'm going to cancel and give people a chance to plan some dry weather activities instead.

Open to all improver & intermediate paddlers.  These trips are not a series, you don't need to have attended the past one.  If you have not paddled on one of my trips before, I'll drop you a line for a chat before the date.

The aim of this session will be picking, and hitting lines.  We will be assessing each rapid from the bank, talking about it, choosing a line, trying to hit it, then getting out and trying again.  We'll pick a shortish section of river with easy options for retries on the various rapids.  You might be aiming for the easiest possible line, or the hardest possible line.  We may even pick out some challenges if it's too easy!
