We travel across the UK in the University’s top-notch minibuses, seeking the wildest white water and surf.
The list below is roughly in the order we run the trips, starting easy and getting harder throughout the year and allowing you to improve your skills. If you’re good enough then you’ll be offered the opportunity to try some serious white water with the yearly trip to Scotland. There is also usually a trip to the Alps organised between members (if you really know your stuff).

We would like to remind everyone going in/on the water to cover any open cuts with a waterproof dressing/plaster, try not to drink river water, try to wash your hands with soap before eating, and make sure you wash after paddling. If you do start feeling ill and decide to visit the doctor please mention you have been in the river and mention Weil’s to the GP.
