But may be slightly later depending on the session and the coach taking it. Please read the latest edition of Wet News for details of the coaches taking the various sessions. Also have a look at the forum for any last minute changes or amendments to sessions. The Tuesday evening training is open to all club members of all abilities, there is something for everyone.
These continue throughout the whole year, as do the sea kayak trips on the first Saturday of each month. Even though the weather is warming it still be chilly so wrap up warm.
From October to early March the club run trips on local rivers. We run trips suitable for beginners and above training for 3 star white water.
White-water paddling is exciting and gives the participant new and interesting ways in which to entertain the coaches! We run trips on most Sundays (and some Saturday's) during the season, depending on water levels. Be warned. It does get cold - so wrap up warm!More..
All of these events will be published in the newsletter and in the calendar, so remember to keep checking, and keep paddling.Tweet
