Starter Sessions

Click on the the link to the beginners page to find out more.

Our official program of beginner’s courses comes to and end in late October and is sadly all sold out.  We will resume again in the spring of 2018.  The beginner’s sessions are a bit slow and so can get a bit cold sitting in a kayak when the weather is not so good.  Also, after you have completed the starter sessions, we would like you to move onto racing kayaks, which are a bit unstable.  If you do fall from November onwards, it can be a bit chilly!  We don’t use wet suits in racing kayaks as they are awkward.  However brave adults who do want to want to try and learn to kayak over the winter are welcome and we can set up special sessions via email.  Alternatively you may just want to be in our waiting list for next spring.  Our email address is ealingcanoeclub@hotmail.com.

About the Club

Ealing Canoe Club is a friendly, inclusive kayak club situated on the Grand Union Canal. We cater to all levels of paddling ability, running courses for complete beginners as well as training more experienced paddlers to race competitively in both marathon and sprint competitions.

We run regular training sessions for both adults and juniors throughout the year. We have a huge range of members: some participate for fitness and fun, while others will train for major events such as the 125 mile Devizes to Westminster race or the marathon Hasler series. Racing is a great way to engage with other clubs and test your skills against others and on different types of waterways, so we encourage all of our members to enter appropriate races as soon as they are able.

We have some new beginners’ sessions starting in May.  Click on the the link to the beginners page to find out more.
