Welcome to the Isle of Wight Canoe Club

Ours is a small and relaxed club that caters for a range of abilities and canoe/kayak interests.  Although our specialty is Sea Kayaking we welcome all those interested in canoeing and kayaking; from beginners to experienced paddlers and we are open to both adults and younger members

We are a club run by members for our members. There is a Committee but the emphasis is firmly on informality with all members being encouraged to suggest and organise events. We are always keen to welcome new members and we are BCU affiliated. Weather permitting we try to arrange trips and training all year around however we are fortunate to work closely with the West Wight Sports Centre and have use of their swimming pool on Sunday evenings whatever the weather. During the warmer months we normally have a full calendar of mid-week and weekend social/fun paddles and all are welcome to join-in. We have our main base on the island in Yarmouth harbour and although we do not have actual club house facilities we organise ourselves and events via our club web site. Our Calendar will set out events and trips planned for the season ahead and each event should include details of ability or boat type needed. That said normally our coaches and experienced paddlers are on hand to help out and provide advice.  My thanks goes to all those who have organised events and trips over the last 12 months and if anyone would like to organise a trip please ask as we would always welcome the help.
