Half Day Open Canoe Trip and Paddle Start Award

26th August 2019 10:30 - 14:30


Venue: Hampstead Lane, Yalding, Kent ME18 6HG

Why not join us for a leisurely half day's paddling on the river Medway at Yalding and complete the new British Canoeing Paddle Start Award!

This event is led by Grant Scamell - BCU Level 5 Coach. We will take a leisurely paddle up the river Medway from Yalding to Sluice Weir where we will have lunch. On the return journey we will be able to "shoot" the Sluice Weir canoe pass which are the most challenging on the river. Don't worry, you can always portage this if you prefer (top tip - it's harder work though!).

Course cost 60 per person


  • Use of Venture Canoes Prospector 15 or Mad River Explorer tandem open canoe, paddle, buoyancy aid and helmet.
  • A day's coaching/leadership by Grant Scamell - BCU Level 5 Coach.

Please note:
