DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 PANDEMIC THE CLUB HAS CEASED ALL EXTERNAL CLUB ACTIVITIES. ONCE IT IS SAFE TO DO SO AND TAKING INSTRUCTION FROM BRITISH CANOEING, THESE ARE SOME OF THE ACTIVITIES WE’RE INVOLVED WITH.
As a club we have many activities which you can get involved in. Get in touch with us to find out how.
Club Night – Summer Season
We usually meet at about 5.00pm on a Thursday night, throughout the summer, at High Farm in Old Whittington. We either travel to Matlock Bath, to paddle the river Derwent, or to Walton Dam in Chesterfield where we paddle on the lake. Everyone is welcome to our club nights, however please get in touch so that boats and kit can be arranged.
We host a number of river trips throughout the year, from novice trips to more advanced white water trips. The programme is not too precise about where the trips will be held because it will depend on the water levels nearer the time. As soon as the location for the trip has been decided it will be posted on the programme page and we will email those who have expressed an interest in attending.
River trips are usually on Saturdays and consist of roughly 8-9 O’clock starts and about 4-6 O’clock finishes, depending on the location and length of trip.
Through the winter we now meet at Sharley Park Leisure Centre in Clay Cross in the warmth of the swimming pool. This is a great place to learn the basics or improve your skills.
