Club paddles usually take place on Saturday mornings and start from the base at 9.30am, see Where Is The Club
. Local streams and rivers offer a wide range of routes with varying levels of difficulty, these range from 4km to 14km in length. To ensure variety and to suit the experience of the group and weather conditions the exact route taken is decided on the day.
To join the paddles, you need to be an active member of the club and have completed the British Canoeing Discover award
(or 1 Star award) or have equivalent paddling ability.
The club is able to provide all the kayaking and safety equipment. However, you are requested to make a £1 donation to the club for the loan of a canoe or kayak.
You should wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting wet, ideally quick drying, with additional layers for colder days. You may want to bring a bottle of drink, towel and extra clothes to change into after the paddle. As it gets colder, you will see some members in drysuits, however many members paddle without them throughout the winter so please do not feel that you need to acquire one.
