The River Towy
Llanwrda is a small village on the River Towy, located in West Wales. The village is very idyllic and scenic, with the backdrop of hills and the setting of the river. Rivers, however, can be very dangerous as depending on the weather the flow and speed can vary, which means swimmers must be aware. Children in particular should be looked after properly when around a river, as they may easily fall in and end up injured.
River based sporting activities
There are various water sports that can be conducted in a river. It’s essential that you take care at all times as sporting accidents can and do happen.
Rafting is one of the most famous and most popular river sports in Scotland. White-water rafting in particular is a huge adrenaline buzz to those who love a thrill. If you haven’t been instructed clearly, or you are not looked after by your instructor during the experience, you may end up injured. If this is the case, Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a no win no fee in Llanwrda claim for compensation through our lawyer in your area.
Canyonying is another well-known adrenaline-pumping sport. This river sport involves swimming, jumping and sliding over waterfalls or scrambling across rocks. Again, if you haven’t been instructed properly or you haven’t been provided the correct equipment, you may have endured an accident. If you have, make a no win no fee in Llanwrda claim for compensation.
Cliff jumping traditionally consists of jumping off cliffs. In order to reach the cliffs, you have to scramble into a gorge. Jumps start small, at about one metre, but if you get the hang of it and want to test yourself, it’s possible to go as high as eight metres in a morning. This can be a very tiring and strenuous sport. As with any river sports, ensure that you know what you are doing before you begin to prevent an accident.
Top river sport safety tips:
