Wales Weekend 27 & 28/02/2010

Have to say a big ‘Thank You’ to all the coaches leading the two days on the Wye last weekend(27 & 28/2/2010). In fact, a thank you to all participants who entered into the spirit and together evolved a fun atmosphere. Special thanks to Adrian and Julia for the arrangements, planning, food, smashing Bunk-house and indeed, the chosen sections of the Wye around Builth Wells.

For readers unable to join the shin-dig, the Wye was not in flood. The water was fresh and clean – and flowing (I guess) at a knot or two mostly – faster in the rapids. We did notice the rocks – sometimes before we hit them. Certain skilled members of the group paddled the Grade3 sections, whilst lesser mortals portaged round them.

The travelling worked fine, and all the catering. Pub on Saturday dished up excellent food. Cosy and friendly.
