Welcome
We are an inclusive and friendly local community club, focused on the sport of sprint and marathon kayak flatwater racing, for fun, fitness, personal achievement, and competition.

Through regular training sessions we coach junior and adult members to improve their skills, fitness, and confidence, all while having fun, making friends and enjoying the outdoors.

Always happy to welcome new members, no matter what your level of experience, we can help guide you on the journey to get the most from the sport.

The club is run entirely on a non-profit basis by members and volunteers.
Membership: How to Join

Kayaking Beginners:
For those with little or no kayaking experience, we recommend starting with our beginner sessions to learn the basic paddling skills needed before progressing to a racing kayak and becoming a club member.

On average it takes 3 or 4 beginner sessions to be ready to progress to a racing kayak.
