Back after 20 years away from kayaking! Oxfordshire

Post by Adam80 » Thu Jun 07, 2018 10:38 am

Good morning all.

As the title state's I'm back into kayaking after roughly 20 years off when back in my teens I completed my four star qualification.

I feel getting back on the water might be a shock to the system after all this time but I have picked up my second hand kayak yesterday and looking forward to getting back out on the water. 😁

I'm living in Carterton next to Brize Norton in Oxfordshire so any tips on local paddling would be much appreciated, company or offers to tag along would also be good.

Adam.

Try one of:
North Cotswold CC in Bourton-on-the-Water
Cheltenham CC
Thameswey CC in the Waterpark near Cirencester
Gloucester CC
Canoeing - bigger boat, broken paddle, more skill!
