Third Saturday every month from March to September in 2018


Given the forecast snow warning, the Taster Session on 17 March has been cancelled. 


We shall be running kayak taster days on the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham.

Taster sessions are an opportunity to spend about an hour in a kayak to see whether you enjoy it and would like to come back for more.

  • Saturday 19th May
  • Saturday 16th June

BADCC will:

  • arrange a kayak and paddle to fit you for the session
  • lend you a buoyancy aid for the session 
  • lend you a cagoule if it is cool or might rain
  • provide qualified supervision for your session on the water

You will need to:

  • arrive at the wharf beside the Basingstoke Canal in Odiham
  • be suitably dressed for paddling (T-shirt, shorts or tracksuit bottoms, old training shoes)
  • bring a towel and dry clothes to change into after the session (you will get damp from drips though we hope you will not fall in)

Taster sessions will be running from 10am to 4pm

The cost will be £5 per person

There is no need reserve a space, but you may have to wait a short while until a kayak is available.  For more information please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
