Kayaking / Paddlesports


Youth and adult kayaking sessions run from May to June and from August to September.

Youth Kayaking is on a Thursday night, and adult kayaking is arranged as and when weather and leaders are available.


We hope to offer skills sessions and development/progression to cadets and adults this season.

  • The coach / leader will provide participants with a list of kit to bring appropriate to the length and conditions of the planned trip.
