As we start heading out of COVID-19 lockdown we have been inundated with new membership enquiries. This is great news, thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you all as soon as possible.

We are currently taking names & contact details and in the forthcoming weeks we will hopefully be able to restart our taster, beginner and new-racer sessions.

> Coaching new paddlers to racing boats means close-contact, sharing equipment, setting-up kit and capsize rescue/assistance and of course none of this can happen whilst maintaining 2 meter distancing. This is the current hurdle that we need to resolve before we can go back to normal.

Are you already a racing paddler?
Are you a returning past member?

Please contact us and we can discuss memberships and explain how the club is currently operating.
