About CBC Kayaking

CBC Kayaking aims to:
  • Introduce people to kayaking and canoeing safely
  • Provide development opportunities for those wishing to progress in kayak and canoesports
  • Ensure that learning is fun
 
It does this by:
  • Providing kayaks and paddles (participants are required to provide their own wetsuit or similar, windproof jacket, properly fitting buoyancy aid, hat, snacks and change of clothes)
  • Providing appropriately qualified and experienced coaches
  • Running sessions for children (age 8yrs+), young people and adults, beginners and progression groups
 
CBC Kayaking runs on Tuesday evenings and has sessions for both children and adults. Beginners can expect to work towards achieving their Passport to Paddlepower (for children) and One Star (for adults) and those wishing to continue to develop their skills can work towards the next levels.
 
The sessions currently run at Buidhe Watersports Centre (many thanks to Mark and Helen for letting us use the premises) and are coached by Di Oliver and Ashley Pollock, who are both qualified instructors.
 
The dates for this summer are:-
