Month: March 2016

We’re moving!

Shetland Canoe Club is changing it’s base for 2016’s outdoors sessions. We will confirm where to find us for this summer’s training as soon as we can.

Shetland Canoe Club Beginners Sessions start 18 April 2016

Starts Monday 18th April, 25th April, 2nd May, 9th May
If you’ve never kayaked and thought you’d like to give it a go, this is a good way to learn some of the basics before you get out onto the sea.
Each week we’ll spend just under an hour looking at safety, equipment and general paddling do’s and don’ts before heading into the pool. At the end of the four weeks you’ll be ready to head outdoors on the sea to put some of what we’ve been doing into practice before getting going with trips.
You need to be able to swim and be over 13, all children under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
Meet 7:15pm at Bowlers bar for the dry bit. There will be time to get changed before we go into the pool at 8:30pm. Please bring your completed enrolment form with you.

Symposium latest

Numbers are looking good, in the region of 40 already booked and the accommodation at Bridge End is now full. We’re going to have to restrict entries now, please email us at and we will confirm whether we can manage to fit you in.

Many thanks
