Paddle sports 2018

Dolgellau Rugby Club rafters raising money for good causes.

After months of forced paddling  around their rain soaked Marian pitch, club players young and old have put their season's experience to good usepicking up paddles in place  of   wet rugby balls to take on the Hope House /Ty Gobaith Mawddach Challenge on Sunday morning. The aim was to raise money for the North Wales children’s charity.

The race was for  rafted canoes with six crew, to paddle from Barmouth harbour, easterly along the Mawddach estuary to Bontddu and return to the harbour. A distance of around eight miles.

It was a glorious day for all with the Dolgellau  RFC teams coming in  no less than first and second . 

No doubt their experience  in the ‘scrum’ at the start of the race and nipping down the wings under Barmouth bridge did give them a technical advantage....!!!!!!!!            Well done ‘Team Dolgellau RFC ’ credit to you.
