Wye Llangurig to Rhayader 30 December 2010
On a mild Thursday morning, seven members of SVCC met in the
Strand Cafe at Rhayader prior to paddling the stretch of the Upper
Wye from Llangurig down to the Rugby Club get out below Town Falls
We were lucky to be accompanied by aspirant Level 5 coach Paul
Smith of Rock and Water
Adventures and his wife Becca, former member of the team GB
Canoe Polo squad.
Getting on the water shortly before midday, we proceeded on down
through various grade 2 and 3 sections of river, past the Marteg
confluence, eventually reaching Rhayader at around 3pm, without
anyone starting a swim score.
At Town Falls most initially ran via the fish steps river left,
however under the guidance of Paul we all head one or more goes at
running Town Falls.
After much fun on the falls we headed to the take out 200m
below, and a return for a well deserved bun and coffee at the
Strand once more.
Congratulations to everyone for a swim free run
