It is now May 2018 and the best way to get a quick start in the sport is to come along to one of Edmonton Canoe Group introductory sessions. Usually on Saturday afternoons, although they can be arranged at any time email firstname.lastname@example.org & 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 2018
