River Clean-Up on the Tellybox

Well done to everyone who helped out over the weekend, both here and elsewhere on the river.  An especial shout-out to Andy Garlick (Meridian CC) for organising it.  And who's that on the telly?


Slovenia Paddling

With the Slovenia trip coming up, it seemed a good time to post this video made by a friend of mine (Jake Holland of The Adventure Tap).  Bob's almost 70, and paddling the Soca.  What's your excuse? ;-)

River Cleanup Sunday

It's the big Medway Clean-Up this weekend - all the Canoe Clubs who use the river (plus fishing Clubs, boaters, and other river users) will be out picking up whatever detritus is lying around.  There's a rumour the BBC might be covering it, so if you turn up you may even be on the telly!  Bin-bags etc. will be provided - meet at the Club on Sunday at the usual time (9:30).

CDG peer coaching session and meeting from 6pm on 23rd April

Hi everyone,

The CDG meeting tomorrow, Monday 23rd April, will start with a peer paddle at 6pm. It will focus on the session 3 coaching session and give everyone an opportunity to have a go at using any craft they feel less confident in coaching. We will get out SUPs, a K1 and a K2 as well as the usual kayaks and canoes. It may even be sunny. If you can't make 6pm, find us on the water when you can.
We will follow up with a meeting upstairs around 7.30pm to discuss any feedback on the session,  dates for courses, paddling trips and AOB. Also, is there anyone who would like to take over coordinating the CDG?
This meeting and peer paddle is open to anyone who supports the coaching at the club or who may be interested in developing their coaching skills, it's not just for coaches. 

Saturday 5th May

Unfortunately Richard isn’t able to take boats to the pool for the May session, so we’ll have to use roof racks. If you’ve got space on your roof rack, please let Lee know so he can help everyone get boats down there. Thanks!

Mole - Tomorrow

Water levels look reasonable for tomorrow's paddle - see you there.
