Summer School

For 25 years a summer school has been run for 5 weeks. We offer 2 introductory sessions a day for up to 12 children per session at a very reasonable price. Many club members have begun their paddling experience at our Summer Schools, having enjoyed the experience so much that they joined the club, bringing along their brothers, sisters and friends and in many cases Mum and Dad have got involved too!

Marathon competition is conducted in divisions; the lower divisions can use any sort of kayak (or canoe in canoe classes) but higher divisions use specialised marathon boats, long, narrow and VERY unstable when stationary! Kayaks can also be single (K1) or double (K2) and occasionally even K4; marathon canoes are also narrow and involve the paddler kneeling on one knee whilst paddling with a single-bladed paddle; again, classes are held for C1 and C2.
