I created CanoeLondon in 2012 to promote and encourage paddlesports across Greater London. As a keen kayaker and a member of several canoe clubs, I was aware that it was difficult for the public to learn about local clubs and paddling opportunities.
Many canoe clubs have limited budgets, basic websites, and low social media reach. Hopefully CanoeLondon helps the capital’s clubs find new members and encourages more people to get out on the water.
London also has half-a-dozen professional paddlesport providers. These allow the public to try canoeing, kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and are a great way to give paddlesports a go, offering a wide range of opportunities.
CanoeLondon is purely a voluntary endeavour. The website contains some advertising but is largely funded out of my own pocket. If you have any comments, corrections, or other suggestions, please use the contact page.
