The You Can Canoe Paddle Group
This group of like-minded people get together for a social paddle wherever and whenever they choose. They get in touch via WhatsApp and exchange thoughts, photos and weekly updates on paddling arrangements. The group also benefit from a discount on any YCC training course as well as a discount code for use with Up and Under Outdoor Clothing and Outdoor Gear both online and at their Cardiff store.
In the past we have ventured off for day trips down the River Wye, volunteered our services at Wimbleball Lake for safety cover at a triathlon in return for a day exploring round the lake. We have also spent a long weekend in North Wales on Lake Bala and paddled part of the river Dee at Llangollen.
This group is for paddlers aiming to improve their experience and skill by participating in different seasonal paddles. We try and cater for everyone, with trips on the sea and estuaries during the summer and playing on white water rivers during the wetter months.
May 2020 sees our second week-long trip when we go up to Scotland starting at Loch Tay before following the River Tay down through spectacular countryside to Perth. This will be a four to five days paddle with camping en-route.
If you are new to a canoe or kayak and wish to join us we would ask you to attend the Tuition Course before coming along.
