4pm – New and non-ranked paddlers

This is a new session to get new people into canoeing, it will be run by our specialist Slalom Coach Rick Moore, with the aim of getting people to learn the basics of paddling and then introducing them to white water at our permanent slalom site opposite the Coy Carp, in ideal place to have some refreshments after your session.

We meet at Troy Lake, West Hyde, WD3 9YB, this is accessed from the A412, Denham Road. Alternately, you can park at the Coy Carp and walk along the tow path, please be there ready to paddle at 4pm. At present we do not have access to the changing facilities due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Initial lessons will take place on flat water, and as you progress you will do more and more paddling on the waves, and who knows where it will take you?

Ranked Paddler Sessions

Our Ranked paddler sessions will now start at 5:30pm, we expect paddlers to be ready to paddle at this time. This involves arriving at Troy Lake, in time to do a Bankside warm up, getting your kit ready and getting on the water for 5:30pm. As ranked paddlers, you should know how to warm up together in your group ready for the sessions. Warming up and preparation is an important part of being an athlete, if you want to succeed, you need to do it properly, you need to take responsibility, all the best athletes do!
