Stour Trip Sunday - Cancelled

Due to high flows, Sunday's trip on the Stour has been cancelled.

Leeds Castle Sports Fest

This year Leeds Castle will not be running the Triathlon as in previous years. A Sports Fest weekend now takes it's place across 27th and 28th June, and we have been invited to be a part of it.

Maidstone Canoe club have been asked to provide safety cover for a Juniors Aquathon running from 14:00 - 16:00hrs on Saturday 27th June. Those who have previosly been involved may have provided cover for the junior races and know how much this is appreciated.

Outside the time of the race, we have been invited to run 'Come and try' sessions on the moat. This will give anyone taking part a good deal more paddling time than in previous years and will hopefully help to promote the club in a much greater way than we have been able to during the triathlons.

If you are able to help out on either, or both days, Please contact: mark.harris@maidstonecanoeclub.net


Tomorrow would have been Steve Irwin's 58th birthday.  Be careful out here tomorrow, people.  

Show your appreciation

The Club AGM is a time to find out what's been happening, but also to show your appreciation for those who have made it happen!  Plus, updates on the new building, Chairman's Awards, and a look at the year ahead.  7pm, 13th March - see you there!


A great article from the Senior Instructor at Glenmore Lodge, George Fell, about paddling and fear - worth a read.  Not just for whitewater warriors - applicable to all disciplines.  Via Catch Up with Coaching from British Canoeing.
