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.
Bristol Canoe Club’s top polo team – the Penguins – has been promoted from National Div 4 to National Div 3, after winning the playoffs at the weekend. [ Apologies, we previously (incorrectly) stated promotion from Div 3 to Div 2. ]
Many congratulations to the team.
Please note – this course is now full.
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.
Have fun – Conor
