Covid-19 Update

Club Trips, can be run again smiley


We have been working away in the background identifying ways of running approved club trips and are happy to announce that this has now been completed.

Club sponsored trips may be run with up to 6 people from up to 6 households.

The guidance document can be found <HERE> it includes a risk assessment, and a guide on how to organise a trip. Note that this doc. will be updated as things change.


The biggest difficulty of course is shuttling, therefore, at this point in time we have decided that trips needing a car-shuttle will not be planned
Instead, the focus should be on return or loop trips, or alternative shuttle methods, (cycling, walking for instance).


In addition, there is a new trip consent form <HERE>, as suggested by British Canoeing. Moving forwards, expectation is that for the foreseeable future, it will be a requirement for trip organisers to take a list for emergency contact names and numbers for paddlers.

If you are a British Canoeing member, please could you log into your Azolve membership account, link your personal membership to the club, and ensure your emergency contact details are up to date. This enables club admins to see those details and inform your contact if anything goes wrong. (

Saturday Paddles and Taster sessions

Saturday Paddles

Keep an eye on the calendar this winter as we've started a set of Saturday paddles usually the first Saturday of every month

The idea is to:

  • get existing club members to come out, meet up and have a fun, easy non taxing paddle.
  • introduce new (in-experienced non paddling) members to the club

Come along and enjoy a paddle.

Taster Sessions

Starting Wednesday 19th July we're offering a taster/learn to paddle session, each week will be a different craft.
The 19th July will be Kayking, next week Canoeing and the week after SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard).

These will be starting 6:45pm at the Shallows Saltford.


Please let us know if you're new to the club and are intending to come along by emailing

The club is based just north of Bristol and prides itself on being a friendly, fun loving family club that takes a pride in developing paddlers’ skills. We paddle on a number of rivers throughout the region and regularly run trips to other great destinations throughout the UK and Europe.

We have paddlers of all ages and abilities. Beginners are encouraged to take up the sport, develop their confidence and learn new skills. For more experienced paddlers we offer the opportunity to develop your skills or have fun on the water with other paddlers.We have an active coaching programme that aims to help paddlers develop the skills they need to go paddling in a safe and enjoyable way.

Whether you want paddle kayaks or canadians, take on the challenge of white water, surf, the open sea or just enjoy a quiet paddle down one of our beautiful rivers we will have something for you.

With more than 150 members, an active programme of trips and courses and a large fleet of canoes and kayaks we are able to help beginners get started in this fantastic sport and more experienced paddlers try something new.
