Garstang Canoe & Kayak Club

 

Garstang Canoe & Kayak Club, located between Preston and Lancaster, was founded at the town’s Tithe Barn pub in 1973; originally part of the Scout group. The club is small and friendly and caters mainly for river running and playboating kayak paddlers, but welcomes open boats and sea kayaks too.The club is fortunate to have access to the river Wyre in Garstang, with easy access a stretch of water perfect for training and a weir for practicing moving water paddle skills.

Woo Hoo! We are back on the river each Wednesday from 4th April 6.15pm.

Remember that you'll need something warm and a pair of old trainers or watersport footwear. Changing and shower facilities are available and spectators are more than welcome to come and support you from the bank. Prices remain unchanged at £6 for members, £9 for non members. Booking is not necessary - just turn up with a sense of humour :)

The club will provide you with a boat, paddle, spray deck, helmet, buoyancy aid and a flipping good time. The club has BCU Level 1 and Level 2 accredited instructors so you can rest assured that you're in good hands.

There is always someone to help and advise either the complete novice, or paddlers who just want to join a club with a friendly family atmosphere. Membership is £25/year (£30 for joint membership), but you can come and try before you commit.
