2024 Introductory Sessions 



These sea kayak introductory sessions are run by one of our coaches.  They are intended as an introduction to sea kayaking to non-members but they may also be useful to those members who do not have their own equipment or who would like to increase their confidence and time on the water.


They will take place at Emsworth Marina, 


A session will be approx 4 hours (including sorting and setting up your equipment).


The club has available kayaks, cagoules, buoyancy aids, paddles. Sea kayaks are sit in kayaks with enclosed cockpits.  


Basic water skills are required ie able to swim and general all round confidence in the water. 


We are sorry but we do not have the capacity to take young people (under 18s) for these sessions unless accompanied by their parent/carer both off and on the water. 


You do not need to be a member of Portsmouth Canoe Club for these sessions but you will be asked to join if you want to continue your paddling with the club after the introductory sessions.


The charge is £22 for a set of 2 sessions which includes any equipment hire. Once your place is confirmed we will ask you to pay this before starting your course. If you are a member the cost is £10 for equipment hire if you have own equipment you do not need to pay.


All our scheduled sessions are full for this year, however if a coach becomes available and the tides are suitable, we will try to add extra sessions.
