Wensum Ospreys Canoe Club

How to get started

As with any new sport, to get started you need some basic equipment and someone to show you the ropes. There's no better place to find these than our canoe club. We provide a safe, fun and friendly environment in which to learn and we have equipment you can use and qualified instructors to help you get to grips with the fundamental skills. Our club is also great for meeting like minded people. We organise river trips and occasionally special 'come and try it' sessions for newcomers. The best way to find out more is to contact us by email or talk to one of our members.

Congratulations to Tibby and Billy this year's Wensum Ospreys Canoe Club Annual Pumpkin Carvers Winners. The competition was to close to call in the end and needed a second decision from the five Judges who had 16 pairs of hands, strange but true. Anyway with the awesome entries from the others and a Pumpkin disguised as a conker which actually was a conker from Josie, #Rumbled! Tibby and Billy won# Result!

Our Guy Fawkes paddle was very well attended on a fine mild evening† with a long paddle down the river followed by BBQ, Pumpkin competition, warming fire and short fireworks display.
