In Pool Session/Weekly Club Meets
Our pool sessions finish on 10th May and as Cosmeston Lakes is still closed due to the Bird Flu cases in the Vale of Glamorgan, we're taking the club sessions on tour again: Where - River Taff - Pontypridd - Ynysangharad Park When - Tuesday 17th May. On the water for 7pm, meeting from around 6:40pm. On the water until around 8pm, possibly 8:30pm if the weather is warm. What - This is a short section of slow-moving water that is suitable for all members who have completed a beginners session and feel confident having their first go on moving water. Please note, that the first 450m section has very limited access to exit the river and paddlers will need to paddle through 3 (very) small rapids before being able to get out. Other weekly sessions will take place on entirely flat water. We have limited capacity to move club kayaks. If you have a roof rack and can help, please let us know. We may need to close bookings for this session if we reach the limit to how many boats we can move. More information is available on the attached river guide: Remember, at this time of year, the water temperature is still low, despite the recent warm weather. Please dress appropriately. If you wish to attend this session, please enter the names of all members below including whether you need any equipment and whether you are able to transport equipment yourself

We’ll use this space to post links to kayaking or canoeing gear that we see locally and that we think would be of interest to people looking for equipment. Posting if items here is just for your information, it doesn’t mean we recommend it. Talk to us if you want some advice on buying any kit. Remember discounts are available for club members at Up and Under and Escape Watersports retailers as well. Feell free to post in this discussion to trigger alerts when items are posted.
