Club Trips

We run a range of different kayaking trips and expeditions throughout the year, including inland river touring, whitewater trips, and sea kayaking and coastal touring.

Our trips programme has dates for a range of outings. For quick reference, these are in the club calendar too but see below for any updates. Volunteers are always required to organise trips. If you are interested please contact Paul Jeffs.

Please let trip organisers know you are interested as far in advance as possible so they can arrange appropriate coaches and leaders. Finally – don’t be frightened to ask the organiser about the level of experience (or lack of) for a trip – there are often opportunities for a mix of paddling abilities.

Club Trips are led by instructors, coaches or leaders. Depending on the particular environment, participant experience, weather and water conditions, leaders may adjust the leader to participant ratio and/or impose a minimum level of prior experience or other prerequisite. Club members participating in club trips are also covered by the club’s (British Canoeing) third-party insurance.

Peer Paddles may be organised by members and advertised in the club calendar for members’ convenience. These are activities where no instructional or guiding structure exists and it is the responsibility of each member of the group to ensure the suitability of their equipment and themselves for the activity. You take part in a peer paddle completely at your own risk. You are not covered by the club insurance so you need to be an individual member of British Canoeing to take part in a peer paddle. British Canoeing membership covers third party insurance and water access licencing requirements.
