Come & Try It (Start)

Are you interested in Canoeing?

This is where it all starts the club runs monthly Come & Try It sessions  based at the club house on the river Nene from Spring through to Autumn these sessions are the first steps for those that have never paddled before or have very little experience on the water.

We provide boats, paddles, buoyancy aids, helmets all you need to bring is a change of clothes and some shoes and a towel. We have changing rooms and showers on site where COVID regulations permit.

The sessions last for approximately 2  hours and based on the river you will get a chance to try some boats and generally have a go at all things canoeing under the instruction of our qualified instructors. Please try to arrive for 09:30 so we can start promptly at 10:00.
