Get on the Water with Exmoor Canoe Club

Exmoor Canoe Club will be out in force at the South West Lakes Trust Wimbleball Lake Open Day on 9th June 2019

We’ll be offering taster sessions in a range of craft including Kayaks, Canadian Canoes, Sea Kayaks and Sit on Top’s with our club coaches and members on hand to help. The taster sessions are around 10-15 minutes and this year we will be making a charge of £1 per person for each session to raise funds to assist some of our junior members to complete their coaching qualifications.

We provide all the equipment including buoyancy aids, just be prepared to have fun & get a tiny bit wet. Suitable for all ages and no experience required!

The club taster sessions are separate from the South West Lakes Trust Activities on site, which must be prebooked. Find out more about their activities here
