Introduction to moving water

Saturday 6th October, Introduction to Moving Water - a day building confidence and having fun while trying to learning some of the techniques on moving water, utilising the weirs and canoe shoots on the river Medway.

We will start at the club at 9am to pick up kit, then head to  Teston.  In the afternoon we will move up to Yalding where we will hopefully find some different flows. 

Please book a place by contacting Mary Cutts

Summer Paddling News

I know loads of you have been off paddling in the sunshine - from Switzerland to Beachy Head - so please put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and tell us about it!  Newsletter deadline is 20th August - please send it over before then!  

Shooting Stars

The Perseid Meteor shower peaks tomorrow, so it will be a good night for watching shooting stars and making wishes!  But you can only see them once it's dark.  What to do beforehand?  Come to the pool session!

Last-minute spaces

We've got last-minute spaces on our beginner course starting next Wednesday (7th August).  There are only a couple left, so get in quick!

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!
