Here we go again with a third lockdown. We would normal open up for summer booking at the start of January. However, we cannot take bookings for our normal face to face taster sessions, until we can guarantee being able to run them. As restricts ease we will look to see if there is anything we can run in the interim. It is likely that this will be have reduced numbers and limits on craft we can. Any proposals will have to meet the health and safety protocols that are in place, at the time. When we are able to, we will notify both scout and guide county's of any proposals.
Best wishes and stay safe and we look forward when we can seeing you on the water as sson as we can.
Our evening taster sessions are a chance for scout and guide groups to try out canoeing, kayaking and new for this year SUPS.
The sessions run for two hours, usually 7-9pm. At the beginning and end of the season sessions will start and finish earlier, subject to sunset times (April and September), due to available light..
Each session will include: -

Note that we have sufficient kayaks for up to three sessions and canoes for two sessions or mixture of both.
Canoeing is a generic term to cover a number of types of boats used in paddle sports. It can be confusing as open cockpit and closed cockpit for instance appear in both a kayak and a canoe. For the purposes of identifying craft for session booking the following description is a guide:
1. KAYAKING you sit in and use a double bladed paddle.
2. CANOEING you knee in and use a single bladed paddle.
