Beginners Course

If you're thinking of joining Pirates Canoe Club or have just started to learn how to paddle, you're in the right place!  Our beginner's course has been designed to give you the basic skills in controlling your boat.  Once you've completed the course, you'll have the confidence and abilities to join us on our trips, tours and regular paddle sessions.

This third session will be held at Ashford Prep School, Great Chart. Here we will be working on skills from the first two sessions and practicing wet exits/support strokes. Suggested clothing for the session is below.

What is included: All the equipment needed for each session:

  • Kayak
  • Paddle
  • Spray deck
  • Helmet
  • Buoyancy Aid

This course must be pre-booked as so we know how many coaches we need for each session; we cannot accept on the day arrivals.

    If you can't attend one of the sessions, please let the coach know and we'll try to fit you in another time.  Please arrive promptly as we will aim to be on the water as close to the start time as possible

    COVID-19 UPDATE: The safety of our course participants, coaches and Club members is paramount during the current lockdown.  In line with guidance from both the Department of Health and our governing body, British Canoeing, we have introduced a number of measures aimed at keeping everyone safe both on and off the water.  This includes disinfecting boats, paddles and other equipment, altering our processes and procedures to enforce social distancing, and other measures.  This means there are some limitations in what we are allowed to offer but mainly
