Spring Coaching Courses

When the weather and river become more suitable for new paddlers we hope to run a number of courses for beginners. These will be 6 weeks in total and introduce you to the club and the kayaking. The price is £65 ( the first week free as a trial) which includes coaching , kayaks, paddles and buoyancy aids. We hope you will have enjoyed it so much you will want to join as a member and the £65 will be taken off the membership fees. We will then run an intermediate course for you. I’m aiming to start an adults course on Monday 29th April at 6pm. For kids ( and parents who want to try) we run a very popular course on a Thursday at 5:30pm starting after the Easter holidays on May 2nd. We also have the offer of intermediate courses on Sundays at 11am and Thursday evenings starting after Easter weekend for anyone who wants to join the club and go for a scenic low
speed paddle and improve their technique. There is always the chance of getting wet with canoeing so bring adequate clothes in which to paddle in and a change of clothing to go home in. We have good changing facilities with hot showers.
If you are interested please contact me on coachingcoordinator@hotmail.com

Incorporation – to be voted on at the AGM

Hi.  Thanks to lots and lots of hard work by Sue Hawthorne and Simon Davies we are now able to vote on whether to incorporate the club – for it to become a limited company.

Please see the rationale for doing so, the Articles of Association and the Bye Laws.  These can still be amended and will be reviewed by a lawyer. Please note I am not intending to print  copies of these out for everyone for the AGM.

Regard,

Julian

Alistair Collier

Alistair Collier

We are shocked and saddened to hear that Alistair Collier is missing at sea.  He was taking part in a GB Outrigger Canoe Association race off the Dorset coast yesterday, and is still missing.  According to media reports, the search has resumed today, led by the Coastguard and involving RNLI lifeboats and the police.  Alistair is a valued member of the club and a keen paddler.

I don’t have any further information on the circumstances.  We can but hope he returns safely.  Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.

April Regatta 2018

Some of our Juniors and U23 paddlers attended the national regatta at Nottingham on the 14th and 15th of April, there were many successes, along with some new personal bests set, even if the conditions were not optimum. Well done to all participants and good luck to all racing this season.
