Llandysul 2020

Training Camp Report

We held a training camp for our slalom paddlers in Llandysul, Wales, the site is used for events at al divisions in the UK calendar, so an excellent venue, for fun, practice and a weekend away.

Covid-19 has caused disruption to everybody and the spring calendar has just been ripped up for amateur sport, but we were lucky enough to be able to organise a weekend away at Llandysul for our slalom paddlers, whilst maintaining appropriate Covid-19 protocols.  We have always maintained that canoeing is the ideal socially distanced activity.


We welcomed a couple of old faces back to the trip and we had some family fun time as well. with some non-paddlers hiring inflatables to descend the river.


As well as slalom, we had some of our River Racers there and we did some sprint runs on the slalom site and a 5 mile paddle to finish the weekend.



The event was a huge success and we will be organising more training camps across the disciplines even when life gets back to normal.

We also had access to a swimming pool for some rolling practice.
