Chiltern Canoe Club

Paddling for all ages in the Chilterns.

Members of the club use various paddle craft and undertake a variety of activities – with a focus on enjoyment, rather than competition. To support this, the club offers classes to both adults and children in various disciplines and organises social activities throughout the year.

NOTE: some activities are paused during COVID-19 restrictions.

Although club activities are suspended during the current lockdown, many of our members are getting out on the water for exercise, either on their own if they’re competent or in pairs for company. Here’s a nice autumnal pic of the grand union canal near Tring.

Our adult beginners sessions are still running. We split into three groups of 5 beginners and 1 coach, and have procedures for cleaning the boats afterwards. We go out in most weathers, and it’s surprising how often we managed to avoid the rain. Not always, though! The current cohort still seem to be able to smile, despite the downpour! 😊👍🛶🌧
