This Year, Young Bristol hosted the annual 100 mile Canoe Test 2023! This years was the 58th, and the first after Covid!
This bank holiday weekend, young people associated with Young Bristol and other amazing youth organisations from across the country took part in the NABGC Canoe Test 2023! The challenging test took place over 4 days across the River Wye.
This was the first national water-based event hosted by Young Bristol on behalf of NABGC since Covid, and the group had some amazing weather to round off the weekend!
Young people overcame the personally challenging event, with some canoeing up to an incredible 75 miles! The Canoe Test taught the group some life changing skills, which they can continue to use on their adventures – from preparing their food to setting up their own tent to camp in.
Four days of canoeing down the River Wye was all under the expert guidance of Young Bristol’s Commercial Activities team, ably supported by three adult volunteers who gave up their bank holidays to help young people participate in this amazing experience!
We would like to say thank you to everyone who made this years Canoe Test a truly unforgettable event for everyone taking part!
