There is a canoe trip on the Teme and the Severn on Saturday. Its a gentle paddle and an opportunity to develop skills, with a bit of history thrown in for good measure.
We will start with a bit of history – outside the Kings Head at Upton on Severn – at 1pm (not the programme time which says 10am)
Then we will drive to Powick, aiming to be there about 1:45pm.
If you are interested please let me know by e-mailing or texting 07909537760
Note only 2 club boats left.
Please let me know:
– do you need a club canoe (if you do you will need to meet at PRSC at 12:00)?
– will you meet at Upton or at Powick?
Climbing at Martley Wall Thursday 1st November (half term week).

Liz received a letter of thanks and a certificate on behalf of the club for the money we raised on this years Doggy Paddle. A good time had by all. We should be proud of ourselves as it looks like we raised a quarter of all the total money raised for the entire event.
Well organised Liz.

Hi today we had a great day out doing the Doggy Paddle. It’s just over 18 miles on the Avon from Leamington to Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Our WKCC entries were coordinated and planned by Liz who id a fantastic job. We had 10 canoeists. Liz and Matt S, Claire and Adam, Emma W and Graham, Emma B and Nick D, Ed and Nick G. We also had Matt R, Richard B, Caryl and Lyndon in kayaks. Continue reading “Doggy Paddle – Sunday 13th May – More photos added.”
Thirteen of us descended on Nafford weir this morning which turned out to be a great sun trap of surfing, playing and a little bit of swimming.
Today’s trip was initially planned for Cardiff, but thursday’s session at Nafford proved popular enough to rethink sitting in hot cars for a few hours to drive to the white water centre, and a 10 o’clock start seemed a far more social time to meet and paddle too.

Today me, Liz and Emma W, Nick D, Ross and John H headed off to the Nene White Water Centre near Northampton. The main plan was for Emma to do some play boat coaching and try demo kit if we wanted. Continue reading “CKT Midlands Canoe Show – Nene White Water Centre 20th May”
Today we ran two kayak and two canoe sessions at Top Barn near Holt Heath for 1st Worcester Scouts.
It turned out to be a very successful day and everyone enjoyed themselves despite the windy conditions.
As is typical with a scout group things started out not quite according to plan. We ended up being 3 to 4 coaches/assistants down on the day, the water based scout assistance never appeared, we ended up with nearly 40 scouts instead of the low 30’s we were expecting and the kit had not been arranged properly by the scouts to cover the numbers.
This is where our club do well all pulling together. With some good team work a new plan was hatched with the people we had. This plan relied on juniors Tom, Rachel, Harry and Olliver being a key part. All the coaches were extremely impressed with how mature and helpful they were throughout the day and we could not have done it without you :-D
Adult coaches and assistants were Adam, John G, Graham, Caroline, Ed, Paul C, Matt, Simon and providing vital bank support Rita.
We had a good debrief afterwards to map out everything we learnt so we can pass this on to other groups.
Well done to all.
On Paul C’s recommendation last month me and Marina went to Lea Valley White Water Centre to watch the final day of the GB Canoe Slalom Trials. Today was men’s C1, K1 and C2 and women’s K1. To see some of the countries top paddlers was superb.

Wychavon Kayak and Canoe Club (WKCC) held their 2nd annual Canoe Polo tournament at Droitwich Leisure Centre on Saturday, 10th March with 9 teams competing on the night.
Teams of 13-16 year olds from Festival Housing, Droitwich Young Firefighters (2 teams) and WKCC (2 teams) competed in this year’s Junior category. Although their paddling ability varied greatly,with some being only occasional paddlers, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the chance of playing against all the other teams and the atmosphere was definitely competitive with some closely fought games.
