Edmonton Canoe Group
Ah but which craft do you mean?
A Kayak to be the Captain of your own boat, or
Paddle with a friend in an open Canoe.
The choice is yours?
It is now May 2016 the best way to get a quick start in the sport is to come along to one of our introductory sessions. Usually on Saturday afternoons, although they can be arranged at any time. Fill out one of our contact us forms & I will get back to you.
For those of you who have already done some Kayaking you could learn to roll your kayak. It is not as hard as you think.
Pool sessions have finished until October 2016
Founded in 1983 now celebrating 32 years of introducing newcomers to our sport.
The canoe group was founded in Edmonton North London but now meets regularly at Herts Young Mariners Base in Cheshunt Hertfordshire. The club is affiliated to the British Canoe Union and has a team of fully qualified coaches to help you enjoy your visit and show you how to paddle safely.
We have an enthusiastic group of members of all ages who enjoy paddling with us. There is something for everyone from gentle trips exploring the quiet lakes and streams in the Lee Valley to day trips to the Sea. For the more adventurous you can try the thrills of whitewater with visits to mountain rivers and the Olympic white water course at Waltham Abbey.
We specialize in introducing beginners and families who want to learn how to paddle. We can also set up special sessions for groups, if you have a youth group or group of friends at work contact us and discuss what you would like to do. Birthday parties are always good fun.
Come along, meet us and see how much fun being on the water can be. Bring a towel, change of clothes (No Jeans) & footwear that will get wet.
