White Water Canoeing

For those looking for an introduction or opportunity to improve their canoe skills on white water Andy M will once again be joining the team coaching and leading on the OCA’s series of West Country White Water Weekends on the River Dart this autumn.

This well-established programme has introduced countless canoeists to the thrill of white water over the years with the opportunity to paddle solo or as part of a tandem crew on the Grade 2 section of the river between Buckfastleigh and Staverton under the guidance of experienced coaches and river leaders. The 2018 programme is based at the Pengelly Centre in Buckfastleigh which provides bunk bed accommodation (you will need to bring your own bedding), male and female showers and toilets, drying room and parking. The cost of each weekend includes breakfast. Participants may use the kitchen to prepare evening meals or take advantage of the many dining and take-away options that Buckfastleigh has to offer.

2018 dates: 02-04 November, 16-18 November and 30 November-02 December

Costs: OCA/British Canoeing member £60 per person per weekend, non-member £65 per person per weekend
