Our river and touring trips run all over the country and include coach led expeditions and peer paddle trips.  To find out more about the trips being run, contact the event organisers.

These trips are family friendly. If you would like to bring non-paddlers, please make sure that they are competent swimmers if they are coming on the water in your boat.

Jul 24 @ 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

 This leisurely paddle along the beautiful Basingstoke canal is suitable for recently qualified 1 star paddlers in kayaks.

Meet at Barley Mow car park, next to the canal in Winchfield, Hampshire. The car park is diagonally opposite the Barley Mow pub (the pub’s postcode is RG27 8DE).

You will need to transport your boat to the start point.   Don’t forget to bring a paddle and buoyancy aid.  If you don’t have your own boat, you need to reserve a club boat in the diary.  If you are not in a club boat then you need to buy a £3/day license from the Basingstoke Canal Authority or have British Canoeing membership.

Feel free to bring a picnic tea or snack including a drink as we will be stopping half way to eat our picnic.  Consider that it will need to fit inside your kayak.
