Membership applications during Covid-19

[Updated May 2021] As you’re obviously aware, the CoronaVirus / Covid-19 situation has completely disrupted things for everybody this year, including our canoe club.

Unfortunately, for most of the summer 2020 and into 2021, we were not able to accept any new membership applications at all. As of May 2021, we will accept some new members; based on previous experience and/or ability. If you are a beginner, we may be able to accept you onto one of our beginner’s courses, but these are filling up rapidly.

If you have previous canoeing experience, please contact the membership secretary on, (or any other committee member), describing your experience, and we will see whether we can accommodate you.

We are as frustrated as you are with this, but to keep ourselves, and everybody else safe, we have to continue with some restrictions. We continue to monitor advice from both the Government, and the governing body: British Canoeing.

Apologies – on behalf of Bristol Canoe Club committee.
