Due to lack of daylight in the evenings we are limited to only paddling weekends. But you donít think that stops us do you? We are almost as active over the Winter months as we are over Spring to Autumn. Every Saturday we run Sea paddles (weather permitting). Some are longer sea kayak trips other short paddles in general purpose kayaks. October through to March on Sundays (and some Saturdays) we run white water kayaking trips on local rivers such as the Dart, Tavy or Walkham. Also for club members we run a series of swimming pool sessions for practicing those difficult skills in a warm safe environment. More info.
Runs from mid-April until end of September. Saturday paddles both sea and recreational run all year round. Tuesday evenings are our main training night. On these we offer training up to BCU 3 star in sea kayaking and Canoe. Friday evenings we run Open Canoe recreational paddles. Other nights we run youth paddles for the club also local scout and guide groups. Various intro and taster courses too. Please see our club calendar or the newsletter for details of what is on.
