Introductory Skills and ‘Learn to Paddle’ sessions take place on Tuesday nights between April and August. You should check the calendar page for dates of specific sessions. You should also use the form on the right of this page to contact us so that we will expect you and can be prepared.
During these sessions you will be introduced to the club code of conduct, expectations and the what the sport involves. You will be given the opportunity to get out on the canal in a suitable boat with a suitable qualified member.
Don’t worry, we will provide all the equipment you need. When you use the enquires form, or email us, further information will be provided. This will include details about what to wear and bring to your first session.
When you have mastered the basics, you will be able to join our general flat water paddles on Fridays. As you become more experienced and proficient, you will have the opportunity to develop skills based on your paddling interests. At present the club focusses on marathon racing, white water paddling or just longer paddles or touring.
