Mersey this weekend 14-15/10/17
Due to recent rainfall, flows on the Mersey Whitewater Course will be unpredictable due spilling plus potential power station generation flows. It could rise up to twice the normal flows for periods of time which can present new hazards. If you are coming we recommend checking in with Peter Eckhardt at 10.30am Sat at Arm River camp for a briefing. Another briefing will be held earlier on Sunday.
