BritishCanoeing_LOGOCMYKHave you ever wanted to give canoeing or kayaking a try but never found the time?  Well now is your chance!  We have taster sessions for those aged 55 and over to come and try out a range of watersports.  You’ll get to attend two taster sessions in each activity, before being able to move on to an entry level course in whichever of the activities you choose (or all of them if you wish!).  Activities on offer will be rowing, sailing and canoeing/kayaking.  No experience is required, so come down and give canoeing or kayaking a try! The taster session will cover the basics you need to know to get on the water.  Our sessions are carried out in either open Canadian canoes or sit-on-top kayaks, depending on the most suitable boat for the group.  We pride ourselves on making our sessions accessible to all, so if you have any queries or concerns please contact our office.
