Outdoor sessions are subject to variation, depending on river levels, demand, and the availability of coaches. The best place to check up-to-date information about imminent sessions is on the Club Facebook page [link]

Between October and March, rolling sessions take place in a local pool for existing members.

  • Club lake trips are arranged from time to time on Ullswater or Derwentwater, usually during the summer, sometimes ending with a barbecue on the lakeshore. These can give an opportunity to try out unfamiliar craft at the end of the trip in safe and sheltered conditions.

  • Surfing trips are arranged on an occasional basis when conditions promise to be good, usually on the north east coast, eg an open boat or sea kayak.

  • Club river trips tend to take place between October and March, usually on the Eden or Esk, and are used to improve skills or just have fun.
