A large proportion of our club members enjoy recreational paddling, focusing on non-competitive and enjoyable experiences on the water. We organise various trips to venues suitable for all ages and abilities. Some popular destinations for flat-water paddling trips include the Pocklington canal, Frodingham Beck, and the upper stretches of the River Hull. These locations are suitable for both experienced and inexperienced paddlers.

For most of our flat-water canoeing trips, we use general-purpose “plastic” kayaks, as well as canoes and SUPs. The club provides an ample supply of kayaks, canoes, and other equipment available for use during these trips. However, many paddlers become captivated by the sport and eventually decide to purchase their own equipment.
All of our recreational paddling trips are led by experienced instructors who hold qualifications from British Canoeing (BC).
