August Children’s Festival Taster sessions

This was our third set of taster sessions we offered to children outside the club (including those for Emmer Green) – another full house, with at least 30 on the waiting list.

Blessed again with good weather, we had 90 happy children over three days trying out club marathon boats, as well as slalom. The nervous were reassured, while some seemed to revel in capsizing.

Many were very keen to sign up for courses or U10s early next year.

Our lead coaches and our main coaches were outstanding, with lots of great feedback:

‘Thank you for a brilliant day. Connor was a bit nervous but your staff, especially Emily, was very kind to him. He had a fab time’

Yes, Leo loved it, so just waiting for a space on a course.

“It was AWESOME!’. 

“He said Emily and Patrick and all your coaches were super, and loved the racing kayak with the steering. He had a thoroughly lovely time. Thank you so much.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the kayak session today. They haven’t stopped sharing their experience since.

A huge thank you to you & your amazing team!”
