CANI Recreational Paddles 2018


CANI recreational paddles are suitable and open to all! From first timers to competing professionals, we see individuals, families, clubs and paddlers of all ages and abilities taking part.

You can take in the views from a different perspective and see wildlife you wouldn’t normally experience. These social paddles offer perfect opportunities to get to know other paddlers making them ideal for individuals but also lots fun for the whole family.

They are a great way of getting outdoors, so dust down your boat and come and join us! If you don’t have a boat, open canoes and kayaks are available to hire from CANI.
