(PaddlePower Start & Passport)

Starting 10th January 2018

This is will be a beginners kayaking course aimed at juniors (under 12).  The course will comprise 6 1/2 hour sessions (with 15 min beforehand to get ready) in the warmth of the QMC swimming pool. There will also be a Saturday session on the Basingstoke Canal (Odiham) organised at a time to suit the participants. This session will be when the weather is warmer as young people kayaking in the winter get cold very quickly.
