The club is open to all members of the public and is intended to promote kayaking and canoeing in a cross community environment. The club is mostly non-competitive and we aim to encourage people to feel safe and confident in a white water or sea environment. To build confidence and good basic skills, we try to get as many people as possible to obtain British Canoe Union Beginners and Intermediate Certificates (1-3 star). To achieve this we run a number of training courses, which are open to all members at no cost.
Although mostly a sea-kayaking club, our members enjoy participating in several of the canoeing or kayaking disciplines: open (canadian) canoeing, white water, playboating (freestyle), surf and sea kayaking are all catered for. The club runs around 200 trips across the North of Ireland every year, and occasional trips further afield.
The Club is is registered with HMRC for charity tax reliefs (XR60023) and is affiliated to the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland (BCUNI/477/club/2002).
