Training Weekends

Training Weekends are a great way of developing skills further, learning new skills and enjoying paddling in some beautiful countryside.

We offer two weekends a year:

Biblins

This fun weekend takes part in late June each year and is based at the Biblin's bunkhouse and campsite in the Forest of Dean. Paddling on the River Wye, there are usually courses for beginners and intermediate level paddlers in canoes and kayaks.  A friendly and sociable weekend, all meals are provided in the cost and we can supply all the paddling equipment you will need too. 

Date of next Biblins' Weekend: 26 - 28 June 2018.   Contact Steph via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further details.

Whitewater Weekend

Paddling the Rivers Usk and Wye, this weekend offers the opportunity to develop whitewater paddling skills and achieve a whitewater qualification.  A great weekend to build your confidence on Grade 2 and 3 rivers.  Staying in the Cantref Bunkhouses near Brecon, all meals are included in the cost.  Equipment is available for hire.  This weekend usually takes place in early November and is suitable for improving or experienced paddlers.

Training with NACC

We are passionate about developing our members' paddling skills. 

During the summer we offer a number of canoe and kayak courses based in Saltford. These can lead to BCU 1* and 2* qualifications.

Pool sessions are a great way to get started throughout the year and there a number of training weekends to join in with too. 

Members also develop their skills by joining in with club trips and gaining experience of different rivers and types of paddling.
