Once again, Norman is organising the now-legendary Joss Bay Beach Party & Barbecue on Bank Holiday Weekend. Sunday 25th August - all welcome, including significant others, kids, and waifs & strays. Always a good fun day out - see you there!
Just to let everybody know I will be trialling the British Canoeing Club+ facility to coordinate our club membership list with the BC data base. This will help the club keep up to date with members details and provide a useful resource. I will restrict the trial to club members who are also BC members. In the initial stage the facility will allow me as membership secretary to send emails to all the members with BC membership and I will use this method to keep you informed of future plans, for example, renewing membership and paying fees which we may use for the 2020/21 membership year. If the trail goes well it will be extended to club members who are not BC members if this proves possible.

Wise words from Charles Dickens about the French Revolution, and something to think about as you're celebrating Bastille Day with the French after the pool session tomorrow.
If you're thinking of paddling further afield and want some confidence on moving water - breaking in and out, ferry gliding, etc. - then this session is for you! On Saturday, August 17th, Mary (WW coach and river leader) is running a coached session at Chartham on the lovely River Stour. See calendar for details.

Protip: emptying your boat and drying it with a sponge before it goes back in the boat shed is Good Karma. In your next life, you'll come back as a Better Paddler!
