Social Paddle with Beacons SUP


Sorry, registration has ended.

Save the date. (Sunday 26th back up date if the weather is unsuitable.) Social paddle with Beacons SUP on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Event information from Beacons SUP: We will paddle an out and back route, heading south from Talybont on Usk, taking in the Ashford Tunnel but going no further than Llangynidr Locks before turning back (max of approx 10km). Note that the tunnel is DARK so bringing a head torch or lamp is advised! The canal is relatively traffic free and safe, however there are narrow sections, shallow areas and occasional tree debris to negotiate. Plenty of parking in Talybont, both on street and a signposted car park. There is also a cafe (and pubs) for post paddle snacks/drinks, but taking a bite to eat and a warm drink onto the water would be a good idea. Note - This social session is for paddlers with some experience. Hire equipment is available (board, winter wetsuit, PFD & boots) if you don’t have your own board, please contact Island SUP. This is a peer paddle; paddlers paddle at their own risk with support from Beacons SUP and Island SUP. Appropriate clothing must be worn, a leash and buoyancy aid are mandatory. Launch Time: 10.30 (Ready to Paddle) Launch point: Just South of Talybont Swing Bridge
