CANI Recreational Paddles 2019


CANI recreational paddles are suitable and open to all! From first time paddlers to competing professionals. We are delighted each year, to see individuals, families, clubs and paddlers of all ages and abilities taking part.

You can take in the views from a water-level perspective and see a wonderful variety of 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 of fun for the whole family.

They are a great way of taking in our beautiful 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.
