Bristol Canoe Club have a regular marathon/sprint racing training session for 2024, every Saturday, starting 9.30-11am, and depending on attendance will hold another session midweek.

“Racing in Bristol has been rather fragmented over the years with racing members getting on the water when they can, but it’s good to have regular group sessions and know there is a fixed session to go to in the weekly schedule” says Mark Heeley.

If you are a regular racing paddler and have missed group sessions, we look forward to seeing you at the Baltic Wharf on Saturdays at 9-30am.

For people interested in trying race canoeing, we will be publishing some dates for beginners once the weather warms up from mid-April. More details are available from

Here’s to some paddling in the sunshine!
