Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join the Club?

All the information you need is here. If you haven't paddled before, you'll need to join one of our beginner courses.

I want to sign up for a beginner course!

Great! Make sure you've read through the information on this page, and then follow the links to sign up online.

I don't want to do a beginner course, I just want to try.

Most years, the Club runs one "Come and Try" day. Please keep an eye on the website (or our Twitter or Facebook feeds) for details. But the Beginner Courses are the best way to go canoeing or kayaking!

I can paddle already, can I join the Club?

Absolutely! If you're at 1* level or above, just come down to one of our regular paddle sessions for a quick assessment and then you'll be welcome to join in.

I'm interested in racing, what should I do?

Fantastic! The best thing to do is to come down one Friday night at 6pm, which is our beginner's racing night. Have a chat to one of our friendly racers, and take it from there! More information is here.
