This is part of our plan to create the most successful local canoe club ever, we have been working in the area for the past 5 years and the support from local people has been amazing and now it is time to take things to the next level. We will be teaching people of all ages, coaching and getting people to race locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Yes, we have been to international events with our racing paddlers and now it is your turn to get involved, to enjoy the fun and the success.

We will hold some local races at the site and by next Easter we hope to have completed our new home at Havelock: Once this is established we will be running several sessions a week, training local people to race for us, providing opportunities for all. We will also provide lessons for beginners and sessions for recreational and family paddlers; enabling the whole community to be involved.

We need people to help us run the Club, help out with administration at sessions, support the coaches and help us organise trips to other locations, rivers and competitions. Please do not worry, you will not be left to do this on your own, we will support you at every step of the way.

We need people who can help us manage our site once it is converted, so we can make the most of it and get more people involved and make this a truly community club with a community hub. Any offers and ideas are welcome.
