The club was formed in 1991 by four mad enthusiasts, who regularly paddled together. The aim of the club is to introduce canoeing to as many people as possible. Affiliated to the British Canoe Union the club offers good basic tuition with the opportunity to progress to more advanced levels. The experienced and highly qualified B.C.U. instructors operate to strict guidelines laid down by the sport's governing body.
The club owns a good selection of boats - both kayak and open canoes - complete with all safety equipment which can be used by members for a nominal fee - which goes to the upkeep of the shared equipment.
Trips, usually at weekends, cover a wide area of the country and are good fun for everyone of all ages. It may be a lazy paddle along a restored canal, in a beautiful tree line valley teeming with wildlife, or a heart pounding blast down rapids and over waterfalls where staying dry is impossible and remaining upright is a real challenge.
