Meridian Canoe Club kayak course

Here is a great opportunity to get three days of kayak training for beginners, including a river trip, for just £25!

Meridian Canoe Club are offering three days of kayaking-related skills development on the 18th, 26th and 27th of May 2013. Please note, this course is targeted at adults, but under 16s are welcome on the course providing they are accompanied by an adult who is either taking part in the course or staying on site while the course is taking place.

The first two days of the development course will be on the lake at Danson Park in Bexleyheath, home of Meridian Canoe Club, with the third day being a day trip on the beautiful River Medway.

The course is aimed at developing the skills of any potential members prior to them joining the club, and it is hoped that by the end of the course the attendees will have attained the BCU Paddlesport ‘1 star award’. Should you already have your 1 star then we will work with you to refine the skills that you have previously learnt to become a more efficient paddler.

At the end of the first two days of the course, attendees will be in a position to consider joining Meridian Canoe Club to practice and develop the skills they have gained on the course. For further information, please email

The course is available at a special discounted rate of just £25.

If you want to bring a friend or family member along for the course, then they can join you for free (or you could split the cost between you) – a sort of buy one get one free!.

If you are interested in this course, please return the registration form with a cheque for £25 made payable to Meridian Canoe Club to the address at the bottom of the form.

Should you wish to join Meridian Canoe Club directly from the course, yearly membership is currently as follows: Senior £35, Youth/Student (over 8 but under 18 or in full time education) £15. There is also a one-off £10 joining fee.

All paddlers should bring a change of clothes for after the day’s paddling; they may also wish to bring a second set of dry clothes to paddle in as there are likely to be three sessions a day depending on the weather.
