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.

We have lots going on both on the water and off the water. Look down the list below and contact us to enquire about any of the events.

Most events are free and open to all ability of paddlers

Our Derbyshire 2019 trip was a great success this year. We enjoyed good weather and paddled two different rivers during the weekend.
