Touring in a canoe or kayak enables the paddler to take in the countryside and get close to nature, in addition to getting out into the great outdoors.
We have 2 regular touring groups who usually paddle from the club and either paddle up river to 3 arches or down river towards Papermill Lock. The Wednesday morning group meet from 10-12 and the Saturday morning group paddle from 9-11. The groups are friendly and our main aim is to have fun and socialise whilst paddling. Paddles usually end with a cuppa and cake/biscuits. If you are new to touring and wish to come along either speak to one of the touring committee or just turn up to either session.
We also aim to provide progression on the British Canoeing Explore award to club members that wish to expand their paddling experience on different rivers with different craft. We are quite informal on our tours allowing you to move at the level you wish.
If you have any suggestions for trips you would like arranged please speak to one of the touring committee.
