Are you tired of not getting out on the River for half the year? Bored of sitting at home and darning your socks in front of the fire? Over the winter the canoe section have:
· Been out on the river every week (except when Skiing!)
· Paddled at Olympic venues
· Paddled extreme white water rivers
· Taken part in speciality courses
· Competed in races
· Just gone out for a quiet (!) paddle
So don’t vegetate – come and see what we have to offer, this year we will have:
· Beginners' and improvers' courses
· Juniors' courses
· Gentle paddles (try new stretches of river)
· Update sessions for people can kayak/canoe but haven’t been out for a while
· Helpers' and instructor courses
· Master classes (our instructors and experts from other clubs)
ENJOY THE RIVER ALL YEAR
