Its that time of the year again – West Yorkshire Canoe Club’s annual Washburn event is fast approaching.
This is a chance for members to paddle one of Yorkshires best whitewater river runs. This is a dam release so the water level is guaranteed however little rain we have had.
We have now had confirmation that we have water on both the Saturday and Sunday so we can run the full weekend.
We will be organising our own catering for the second year, this year we plan to offer more hot food such as chip butties, burger and chips etc. Some members have already committed to come along and help out but if last years event is anything to go by we will require plenty of club members to come along and help out for a few hours.
The river is fast flowing grade 2/3 so not suitable for novices but any members who feel they would like to paddle please have a chat with a member of the committee to ensure suitability.
