About Us

What it's all about?

Fowey River Canoe Club is the South West’s top racing club producing paddlers of national standard across all age groups. We concentrate on the main competitive flat-water kayaking disciplines of Marathon (distances between 2 and 200km) and Sprint (200, 500 & 1000m) with our junior and senior paddlers attending competitions both locally and nationally. The location of the club offers fantastic opportunities, depending on tides, to paddle to Lostwithiel, Lerryn, Penpoll or down to Fowey harbour and Polruan.
