Pool sessions open to non-members

Pool sessions are now open to non-members - please share this with any other paddlers you know who aren't currently MCC members (they will need British Canoeing membership)

First Aid

We've got a first aid course running on July 16th, focussing on skills useful on the water and off.  If you haven't done a first aid course for a while, it's definitely worth getting an update - things have moved on, and it's good to have it fresh in your mind if you do ever need it.

This 8-hour course is approved by British Canoeing for coaching and river leading qualifications.

Use it or lose it

There are still spaces for the pool session tomorrow!  Rolls, capsizes, braces, rescues, and general good times - see you there!

Last call

Last call for the newsletter!  Any last-minute articles, thoughts, gear reviews, or interpretive dance routines to by Friday please!

Learn to Canoe!

We've still got spaces on our Canoeing Beginner Course on the 19th & 26th June.  This is a rare opportunity to learn to paddle a Canadian-style open canoe - we typically only run one of these each year!  These boats are fantastic for couples, families, bushcraft and wilderness paddling, as well as a great craft for those who don't like the enclosed feel of a kayak.  Spaces are strictly limited.


A huge thanks to everyone who got involved at the marathon today!  Photos courtesy of Reece.
