Introduction to White Water

Yesterday I ran a private white water course for Glen and Ali on the River Dee at Llangollen. We used the grade I and II rapids on the site to look at breaking in and out of the flow and ferry gliding across it. We also ran some of the rapids on the upper section, which always gives the participants a thrill!
The hardest part of the day was battling against the cold, after it being relatively warm on New Years day the temperatures have plummeted since. Glen reckoned the water wasn't too cold, under two wet suits and a fleece top, but Ali and myself decided not to try this theory out.
