River Wye Trip – 15th December – Details and map

Sunday 15th December I am organising a canoe & kayak trip on the River Wye from Glasbury to Hay on Wye.

This is a nice easy stretch of grade 1 water so suitable for most of you including those working towards 2 star. River Leaders are sorted, and you need to be there at the layby across the bridge in Glasbury ready to paddle by 9:30 so we can sort ferry ready for earliest allowed launch of 10:00 am.
Please ensure you bring your own drinks, food and spare clothes to take with you. Check the weather before you leave.
See ma of meeting point  (you can zoom in and out, and use satellite view etc) –
