 We are Maidstone Canoe Club

 We sea kayak.

 We race.

 We are Maidstone Canoe Club.

 We mess about in boats.

 We run rivers.


Testament again to the enormous attention to detail that goes into planning Club events for your delight, we have arranged that the next pool session falls on National Bikini Day - July 5th, the anniversary of the invention of the eponymous swimwear in Paris in 1946 (by Louis Reard, if you were wondering).  I'll be wearing mine to celebrate!

Demo Day next week!

Don't forget that Kent Canoes will be at the Club next Sunday 3rd July with a selection of boats and kit to play with.  Drop them a line if there's something specific you'd like to get afloat in!

SUP Beginners

There are still a couple of spaces on our SUP Beginner Courses starting July 9th!  We don't run these very often, so if you've been thinking about getting on the river and having fun, now's your big chance!  (Note these courses are not for existing Club members)

Midsummer Moonlight

Don't forget our Midsummer Moonlight Paddle this Tuesday!  The Medway by Moonlight, on the full moon closest to midsummer - it's going to be gorgeous!

FSRT - last-minute space

If Carlsberg did kayak courses, it would be the FSRT.  We've had a last-minute space open up on ours this weekend (June 11th) - first come, first served!

Boat jousting

By an astonishing coincidence, our pool session next week falls on the 502nd anniversary of the jousting contest and meeting between Henry VIII & Francis I at the Field of the Cloth of Gold near Calais.  We will - of course - be celebrating this important occasion at the pool session.  See you there!  (Plate armour & horses will not permitted in the pool)
