Welcome to 2020

What are your paddling Plans for this year?

There are plenty of opportunities to get active, to get more involved and there is no pressure to do anything other than what you want to commit to.

There are no up front fees, no signing up to courses,  although we will be running course for those who want them, You can join for recreation and fun and enjoy casual paddling or if you want you can take part in competitions.

We compete at all levels, so you can do local competitions, which are fun and you do not have to be too serious about, but if you wish to commit a bit more you can try some higher ranked competitions all the way up, we have been to local, regional, national and even international events, and it is always fun at whatever level you participate. So the choice is yours?
