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.

Our trip to Derbyshire was very interesting  . . .  . See the pictures page

Our joint BBQ was a lovely end to the days activities

Our Sunday paddle included a passage through Papermill Lock. This was great as it saved us a 200 mtr portage.
