If you are new to paddlesports, you might not know that there are lots of disciplines you can take part in and many paddlers do more that one. Click on a name to find out more!
We have visited many places including Bute and the Firth of Clyde, Loch Sween, the Garvellachs, Falls of Lora, Arisaig and the Small Isles. Knoydart, Skye and the Summer Isles as well as the Firth of Forth in the east have all features. We are always going new places.
The club has an enthusiastic and growing sea paddling group numbering well over a dozen and includes relative beginners through to 4 star leaders and we also have a sea kayak specific UKCC Level 3 aspirant coach. This means that we are able to offer in-house support to paddlers up to 3 star as well as those keen to explore the moderate water environment. We also have a fleet of eight club sea kayaks that are available to members.
We have been well supported in our development over the last few years through financial and other support from the Scottish Canoe Association as well as the National Lottery Awards for All and Strathclyde Police. It is great to see interest in sea kayaking growing as a result.
If you would like to chat about our club programme or about sea kayaking generally drop us a line using our contact form.
See you on the sea
Steve – Sea Kayaking Coordinator
Our coaches have a variety of appropriate qualifications and are all very friendly! They can help you gain a variety of British Canoe Union paddling awards (known as the Star Awards). We also run the Paddlepower scheme which is specially tailored to the younger paddler. We generally begin Paddlepower from age 8. Those above about 12/14 usually go straight into the Star Awards.
Hope we can help!
