Sunday 26th September - no paddling at the club

Maidstone Invicta Rowing club will be holding their Small Boats Heads races on Sunday morning from Allington to Maidstone so we will not be able to paddle from the club. As an alternative for the ususal club paddle we will transport boats to Teston Bridge Country Park and paddle from there upstream and back, with an orportunity to shoot the canoe pass for those who want to do so. Please register your attendance on the club calendar, whatever level of paddler you are so we can judge the number needing boat transport. Thanks.

Intro to Whitewater - More Opportunities

I know there were a number of people who couldn't get on our Club Intro to WW this year.  We're unlikely to run another one until next September - however, there is now another opportunity to get some coaching on moving water.  Greg C has kindly agreed to coordinate Club members wanting to do this, with the aim of either joining a series of coached sessions at Lee Valley or getting some private coaching somewhere as a group.  If you're interested, please drop him a line!

Last Courses of 2021

We've added what will be the last courses of the 2021 season - if you want to come paddling with us, this may very well be your last chance until next April!

One more ...

One more space has opened up on the Intro to Whitewater onSeptember 18-19th.  Drop me a line if you're interested.

Intro to WW Space

A space has opened up on our Intro to WW course running on 18/19th September.  This would be suitable for anyone with solid Explore-level flat water skills in a whitewater boat (i.e. not a touring boat).  Drop me a line if you want to chat about it!

Newsletter Last Call

Last call for articles for the Summer Newsletter!  We're still a little short of a full newsletter, so if you've been prevaricating about putting pen to paper, now's the time to commit!

What have you been up to?

The first months of paddling for far too long, and what have you been doing?  Preparing your articles for the newsletter!  This is the traditional quarterly call for you lovely people to tell us about your paddling - paddles short and long, near and far.  Poems, kit reviews, course feedback, trip reports, interpretive dances - all gratefully accepted!
