There is free parking and camping available in The Clancy Group field, we are very grateful for the help and support Clancy give us, without them the event would not be possible. Please do not park in the Coy Carp carpark, (there is a charge for this carpark unless you are using the pub). We would also like to thank the Coy Carp for their support over the years and encourage paddlers to partake in their vitals.

The course is designed for beginners, with an extra gate to make it a bit more interesting for Open paddlers. This event is ideal for clubs, who want to get their paddlers started in slalom.
