White Water Trips
White water paddling in the UK is dependant on rainfall to bring the rivers up to a suitable level The decision on which section of a river to paddle on Club trips will be made on the day based on the weather forecast and on water levels. Whilst we will do our best to find sections at a suitable level, if the river levels are too low, paddling may be abandoned to avoid environmental damage. If river levels are high either paddling may be abandoned or less experienced paddlers may be told not to paddle.

BADCC River Dart Trip 2024
5th to 7th January 2024
This paddle is the highlight of the Club white water season. A gem of a river, the Dart has something for everyone. The “Loop” is a high value red paddle, with a number of Grade 3 rapids (all of which can be portaged) and plenty of play spots. The Lower is less difficult, often considered a warm-up for the Loop, but a nice paddle in its own right. The Upper is a continuous Grade 4 paddle and for experienced Grade 4 white water paddlers only.
