kayak poolNo kayaking experience is necessary to join our group. So far we've had a couple of 6-week courses in Newtowards swimming pool learning the basics of paddling and all have really enjoyed it. We're hoping to run further courses whenever the pool reopens - one course for beginners and another for improvers, depending upon numbers.

We've also enjoyed a day out at the lagoon in Millisle, organised in conjunction with Ganaway Activity Centre, which provided experience paddling in different types of boats.

After being suspended during the Covid-19 restrictions we're now looking to organise further kayaking experiences within the group.

The lagoon at Millisle also provides a gentle introduction to kayaking on moving water, as the video shows.
