sibbing llangorse lake south wales

Has anyone been out on llangorse lake ,I believe there is a 5 mph speed limit on the lake,would that be ok for a 2 stroke(if they allow 2 strokes)

It would be quieter this time of year and for my first time out if anything goes wrong I can row back to shore,I will also have 2 mates with me, one is an experienced boater.

Brecon Beacons Caravan and Camping Lakeside Llangorse Lake - Permit & Launch Prices

It's expensive for a day on a very small area of water, although it looks pleasant.

I can't see any ban on 2 strokes, and it isn't a reservoir.

In your position, I'd probably look for a stretch of river somewhere. Cheaper and a bit more freedom to roam.

I never thought about rivers,with LLangorse lake it was 21 for the day ,plus 7 for a days fishing.
We have got the river Severn Stourport 20 miles away,how do I get permission to go on the river?

For many rivers and canals, you apply online to the Canal and River Trust. Dead simple, and you can print out your day ticket on the day.

For rivers not on the list, you would need to do a Google search. For example, if I want to go on the Ouse near Huntingdon, I found I can either apply in advance, or simply go to one of two marinas that sell tickets over the counter. It's about 8.50 for a day.

I do not object to paying the day ticket, although for a small boat it is likely you would get away with it if you didn't pay. Any navigable river in this country is likely to have had work done on it: dredging to mantain the depth, weirs to maintain the water level, flood banks, moorings etc.

Thanks for your link,certainly worth looking at next year on the Severn at 8.50 per day not far to go either,20 miles to Stourport marina just to check everything is ok.Then off to the sea.
