Brecon Whitewater Weekend (fully booked)

This White Water Weekend will be based in the Brecon area of Wales.  The paddling opportunities may include the Rivers Usk, Wye and Towy.  The sections of rivers we use range from grade 2 to grade 3. What we do will depend on water levels, individual experience and weather conditions. 

This is your weekend and for you to get as much or as little out of it as you want. The river trips will be guided and led by OCA approved Coaches and Leaders.  If you are looking to be coached or gain any specific skills please let us know in advance.

This weekend is aimed at those who already have some moving water experience. It is also an ideal opportunity for aspirant 4 star leaders to gain some valuable experience acting as an assistant to one of the coaches/leaders. 

Payments and Booking:

The cost for the weekend is £80 for OCA members.  This includes a contribution towards the coaches costs.  We may also take day visitors @ £15 per day.  A deposit is required on booking with balance payable by 31st October.
