CRAP = Committed Regular Athletes Programme, the fast lot! Please ensure you check via the WhatsApp group before each session for any changes.

WRENS = Weektime Regular Early Nutters – for div 6 or above preferably. Please join the email group to be up to date with any changes to training.

NITS = Nigel’s Intensive Training Group.

PIGS = Paddler Improvement Group. Please see the RCC PIG Group on Facebook for details.

These are the more formalised training sessions. Members are, of course, welcome to go out whenever they wish, with the usual proviso that they should go out in a group of three or more if in Club boats.

Safe paddling through the Winter:
We paddle through the winter, but you need to dress for the weather – lots of layers, spraydeck, windproof top, pogies for some, hat, plus the usual – they all help to keep you warm.
Paddling will be dictated by the conditions of the river and the coaches’ view of your ability. When the river is on ‘red boards’, you may only go out with a coach in club boats.
