Club Closed

In light of the latest advice from British Canoeing and the Environment Agency, we will have to abide by their guidance and cease all paddle sport activity until advised otherwise.
I would advise anybody thinking of ignoring this directive to reconsider as doing so would bring the club into disrepute.  I thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  Hopefully the current situation will pass sooner rather than later and we can all go back to enjoying our sport.  The most important thing is to stay safe and look after yourselves and your families and to keep up-to-date with current government advice.

Take care,
Brian Williams

Club Membership

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.

Vive la revolution!

“Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death; - the last, much the easiest to bestow, O Guillotine!” 

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.

Intro to Moving Water

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!

Stour Saturday

Annie's leading a trip on the lovely Stour this Saturday, meeting at the Club at 8:30.  This is one of our prettiest local rivers and well worth a trip, both for beginners and those with more experience.  Please drop Annie a mail - - if you're thinking of coming so she can liaise with boats, transport, etc.
