Go Kayaking or Canoeing with Totnes Canoe Club for FREE

Do you fancy having a go at canoeing or kayaking on the beautiful River Dart? Whether you want to be an Olympic medal winner, challenge yourself on white water, or simply want to enjoy the river or the sea, the Club is here to help you.
Totnes Canoe Club is offering free taster sessions on Saturday 1st April. These are open to all from age 8 to 80 (or more), provided you can swim 50 metres in light clothing. The Club will be escorting small groups on the river from the bottom of the playing field on the Elmhirst Site at KEVICC, between 10.30am and 1.00pm. Please email courses@totnescanoeclub.org.uk to register. Bring a towel and maybe a change of clothes as you are likely to get slightly damp. There will also be a second hand kit stall for paddling accessories.
The Club’s weekly sessions start at the end of April with the very popular Junior sessions on Monday evenings and everyone else on a Tuesday. The Club offers training and assessment for the BCU star awards and all coaches are volunteers who are BCU qualified and CRB/DBS checked. There are numerous organised trips on the local estuaries and further afield and the Club has many whitewater and sea paddlers. The Club is renowned for providing a very friendly and nurturing environment in which to learn a variety of paddling types. We have a good variety of boats including open canoes, sea kayaks, whitewater boats and sit-on-tops.
The Club now has Sport England Top Club status showing that the Club serves the people of the community well, by offering a quality experience in a welcoming environment.
