Llyn Padarn TT v2 - Course - Information

Format

Start close in the corner by the Slate Museum, paddle down the lake, following the N/E shore to turn around the large rock at the approx 15 min mark, take the same route back following the shore.

  • Start and Finish
    • The start is in the corner by the Slate Museum (SH 583, 603) just to the north of where the river comes in.
    • There is a tiny beach in the trees, 3 boat lengths NW of there, there is a low branch protruding out of the water.
    • That's the start/finish line.
  • Turn Point
    • The turn point is a large rock 15 min down the lake on the N/E shore (SH 565,619).
    • It is a large (car sized) smooth, low-lying rock immediately after the large smooth rock outcrop that slopes into the water (obvious).
    • Turn CCW around the rock.
  • Course:
    • The course is slightly unconventional in that you need to follow the bank out and back (originally a safety measure from the DCP club for the safety of junior paddlers)
    • You have to complete at least 5km for your time to be valid.
    • Follow the shore approx. 50 m out and you should be ok.
    • Cut across the 'bays' too much and you'll go under 5 km - naughty!
    • Finish under 5km and your time won't count.
    • It may take a few runs to get the hang of it...
  • Timing:
    • Clock starts/stops body level with the start-line branch (not at an arbitrary 5km point.)
    • The organised Winter Series races are 3rd Sunday of each month from September to March, run by Dyffryn Conwy Paddlers.
    • There is usually a time-keeper for the winter-series races, though it's always good practice to time yourself.
    • You can run the course any other time and self-time for an 'Open Run'.
    • PSK publish times for both Open Runs and the Winter Series here on the PSK website.
  • Submit a time


    Craft

    • Kayak, Ski, SUP or Canoe - Any craft you choose must be specifically designed to be suitable for your chosen venue and conditions, it must be in a lake-worthy and safe condition.
    • All paddlers should be capable of paddling their chosen craft safely in all possible conditions for the chosen location.
    • All craft are to be rendered unsinkable, either by manufacturer design (bulkheads etc.) or via extra buoyancy devices (fitted airbags etc.)
    • We do not consider inflatable kayaks/canoes as suitable for this challenge.

    Safety

    • All paddlers must undertake an assessment of risk - for their chosen route, venue, craft, personal ability and conditions before paddling.
    • Ensure you and your group are capable of handling any conditions or hazards possible on your chosen route.
    • Check the weather forecast.
    • Be aware the conditions on this lake can change quickly and significantly. If in doubt don't go. If you are unhappy on the water, paddle to the side, get off and walk home.
    • The management of any risk is entirely the responsibility of the paddler(s).
    • Paddlers are to wear a PFD (Personal Flotation Device) at all times whilst on the water.
    • PFDs should meet ISO 12402 or be CE approved, and must be in good condition.
    • Safe quick-release leashes should be worn where applicable (Skis and or SUPs) as deemed necessary by the paddler's own risk assessment.
    • All craft are to be rendered unsinkable, either by manufacturer design (bulkheads etc.) or via extra buoyancy devices (fitted airbags etc.)
    • Safety equipment should be carried as deemed appropriate in your risk assesment.
    • If you choose to paddle solo be aware of the significant extra risks involved.
    • If you have any doubts - THEN DO NOT GO!
