About Us

Bristol Canoe Club is a club for paddlers in the Bristol area.

We are a very active club, and we do lots of things – see the Calendar page for the latest info, but also we do a lot of trips at short notice, organised via our members-only email list.

We are involved in white-water paddling, flatwater racing, polo, plus general leisure.

For more information, please see the General Information link, and Contacts, or any of the pages available from the menus at the top of the page.

The club will be organising a beginner’s course for adults in May/June 2014. The course will consist of four 2-hour sessions on Bristol docks, on Thursday evenings from 6pm. This will (probably) cost £60.

This course is expected to begin on Thursday 15th May. If you are interested, please email our enquires address; see our contact page.

A reminder that some very old club trip reports and magazines are still hanging around on our web site here; these may be good for some browsing when you have some spare time.

Many thanks to Lisa F for organising last weekend’s trip to Wales. 10 of us went and we had a great time.

On Saturday we managed to paddle the Conwy (not the Fairy Glen!). Low water, but most of us had never paddled it before, some of us after trying for 20 years or so to catch it at a paddleable level.

On the Sunday everything was actually a bit low, so we went to the Tryweryn and took Lisa’s Paul down the lower Tryweryn; the others caught us up after playing on the top for a bit.
