May half term, Reading Canoe Club was delighted to run the annual Taster Sessions as part of the Children’s Festival. These give children between the ages of 9 to 16 the opportunity to try out kayaking – both in flatwater marathon boats and also in slalom boats.
We were pleased to welcome well over 80 children to the club to sample our sport. A very big thank you to all those who helped at them this year – we couldn’t have done it without you.
Big thanks to our lead coaches Seumas, Emily and Balint, our land helpers Kerstin, Nicola, Lisa B and Viktoria and all our support coaches – Trevor, Keith, Timi, Oli, Aidan, Tia, Tilla, Marcell, Hanna, Bob, Charlotte and Alice.
