Please ensure you let Richard Cooke or Paul Atkins know if you will be attending.
This is very important due to current high water levels and to ensure there is enough safety cover.
Here’s a video to get you in the mood
Club members attended an intermediate paddle on the River Tees on the 4th Dec. The day was an overwhelming success and enjoyed by everyone who came along, even the lone swimmer…
Gordon Carey has provided a few pictures from the day. Further pictures can be seen on the club Facebook page.
A video of Abbey Rapids is viewable on the WYCC YouTube page, being paddled by club members Richard, Paul and Matthew.

This coming saturday will see another trip to Sowerby Bridge to play on the slalom course again. Meeting point is the car park on the right hand side, just over the bridge crossing the river – the same place as the last trip.
Hope you all had a great day kayaking down the River Ure today at West Tanfield. Only a few swimmers and the new guys and gals did well.
A few of us are looking to go on the Calder tomorrow for a couple of hours. If anyone wants to paddle, meet at Healey Mills at 1.00pm. If anyone wants to join us or needs any gear etc please give me a call or message. Andy.
The usual session is taking place at Pontefract baths tonight. See you there hopefully 🙂
