How to introduce your kids to whitewater kayaking

It's the summer, lots of us are taking out kids in one form or another, and this is the best advice I've ever seen on teaching kids to paddle. To be honest, you could replace "whitewater kayaking" with "biking", "canoeing", "climbing" or pretty much anything else - it's just good advice!

106 days left!

Only 106 work days left before Christmas!  The Christmas puddings will be in the shops by the end of the week, you mark my words ...

Escape from the soon-to-be-Christmas madness at July's pool session tomorrow!  (Get your Christmas presents early - Kent Canoes will be there with demo boats)

Cool off on the river!

It's too hot to be on land - join us on the water of the beautiful river Medway!  There are still spaces left on our beginner courses this summer - see here for dates and to book!


Late notice but there are still places left on the SUP course taking place on Saturday. See calendar for details. 

Website security update

I've changed the website to force a secure (https) connection whenever you use it.  This is in line with current best-practice.  It should all be working smoothly, but if you have any problems relating to it then please drop me a line!

Friendly Faces!

Now the beginner courses are in full swing, we're welcoming lots of new members at the Club.  Please make sure you say "hello" to anyone looking a bit bewildered, and if you can't take them out for a paddle yourself then please introduce them to someone going on the regular paddle so they've got a friendly face to look for!  All the beginner course graduates can all paddle, so they don't need a coach to look after them - they just need someone to keep an eye on them for the first week or two while they get to know people.  Thanks all!

Tryweryn Trip

We're heading off to the lovely river Tryweryn next weekend (6-8th July) next weekend.  If you're interested in paddling some whitewater, then drop Paul H a line for a chat - we'll be running a couple of easier sections of the river for part of the day so it's a good introduction.
