In light of the rapidly spreading threat of Covid-19 the Committee has made the decision to "SUSPEND ALL CLUB EVENTS" till the 30th APRIL. Nearer the end of April we will look at the advice we are given and adjust accordingly.

This will start as from NOW 17/3/2020. 

The remaining rolling sessions are now Cancelled, money returned to those for the cost of the void sessions from the CLUB.

 Lee Valley is now Cancelled, refunds will be given by the CLUB to those paid up for this event.

 Those signed up to the Swanage training in April will have their place moved to the September slot, or if this does not suit a member they may ask for their money back from the CLUB.

 Holidays are after this April date, but I fear by then we could be in a worse situation with Corvid-19.

 I do hope you understand this decision.

 Many of us started off as just paddlers, and now we are friends. Look after each other through this tricky time ahead.

We are a friendly canoe club loosely based in Portsmouth and the Solent area, but with members from all over the South Coast and beyond. We welcome anyone interested in kayaking; from novices to experienced paddlers.

We have regular evening paddles and training sessions, trips each weekend all year round and weekends and weeks away. In the winter we run a indoor pool session for acquiring and improving paddling skills.

We are always keen to welcome new members, and are BCU affiliated

Why not join uswe paddle all the year round. Portsmouth has access to a wide variety of saltwater from sheltered harbours to tide races and the challenge of circumnavigating the Isle of Wight. This is Sardinia below where we have also been.

If you are new to paddling then come along to our Monday sessions in the summer to try out paddling and meet Club members. 

After completing safety drills and acquiring basic skills, you can move to evening paddles on Wednesdays for more advanced skills, fitness training or even just for fun!
