Heres what you need to know about the Symonds Yat Trip.

Time: Leaving 07:30 Saturday morning and returning late Sunday evening.
Accommodation: Rickyard Bunkhouse (22 beds)
This trip is a white water trip based at Symonds Yat on the River Wye where there is a stretch of water of Grade 1-2, this means that there is some rough water, rocks and small drops you'll be manouvering around.
You will need to bring all your kit to Albany Park on Friday evening, time to be confirmed, so that come Saturday morning everything is packed and we just need you to bring yourselves.
Anyone who wants to come needs to have:
- Signed up to the kayaking club,
- Bought a sports card and
- Done your spray deck test.
Other than that there are no requirements of skill or experience. The trip is aimed at getting beginner paddlers experienced with knowledge of moving water, so don't be afraid as there will be many of us looking out for and supporting you.
Kit you need to bring:
For off the water:
Enough dry clothes for the weekend.
For on the water:
Wet suit (Strongly advised),
Wet boots (trainers okay, boots advised, available from kayak shop) and
