As a section of the Camping and Caravanning Club, all our camping events are open to Camping and Caravanning Club members (including Canoe-camping Club members) only. Anyone participating must be a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club before attending a meet.
Canoeing and kayaking are ‘assumed risk’ ‘water contact’ activities, however serious accidents are very rare.
Participants should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own action and involvement.
All participants in club trips or meets do so at their own risk, and neither the Club nor its officers can accept any liability for loss or injury of any kind sustained whilst on a Club trip, meet or other activity.

RIVER THAMES - M12451/2018
From Saturday 08 September 2018
To Sunday 09 September 2018
Contact Robin Hickman

Canoe Section Rally at Chertsey campsite on the river Thames. Thames and SE Group have booked 8 pitches and thus have rally rates for camping. 

Pre-booking with Robin is essential. It may be possible to add extra pitches to our booking – but please contact me soon, as I need to agree this with site.

On Sat 8 we will start at 10.30 with some safety practice.

Have you capsized or fallen in this year? Were you rescued? Could you rescue someone else? This session planned as a single half-day to practice our on-water safety procedures. It is fun too! Thames licence or British Canoeing card required. It involves: capsize rescue, towing, support strokes, plus any other aspect of interest. Bring ideas for different rescue techniques. All types of canoes/ kayaks. There are spare boats in the shed if required. Getting wet is not compulsory but this is a good opportunity to build confidence, so bring wetsuit, swim togs, spare clothes, nose clip – or just yourself!

There will be Canoe England coaches present.

Attendance at this (and similar sessions) will give run organisers assurance that you are prepared for our more challenging outings.

On Saturday afternoon and again Sunday we will set up one or more paddle trips to suit all.
