Plastic Paddle on the docks on 8th July at 4pm to raise awareness of plastic pollution.

Sunday, 8 July
16:00 – 18:00

I’m the regional rep for Surfers against Sewage (haha) and we intend to head around the waters of the dock and pick up whatever we find.

All craft welcome. We had a few kayaks out with us last time, it’s great! The more the merrier 🙂

We can all go for a pint at the marina afterwards, Please come along if you can – bring a bin liner.

Anglesey #2 Junior Camping Weekend by the Clews family

Thanks to you and everyone else who was involved in the brilliant organisation of the junior Anglesey weekend. Our whole family had a great time, especially the paddlers; Rich, Ella and Poppy. It was great to see them looking so confident in the water and trying new things for the first time!

Thanks again, Amy

I really liked going down the hole at Four Mile Bridge, especially when it was really wavy. It was fun, and I got really wet! It was a bit scary the first time, but the second time it was easier, and I really liked it, but I got more splashed as the tide was much higher.

From Poppy aged 9

I really enjoyed going to the beach and going coasteering. When we jumped in the sea it was very exciting and very cold. We found the big cave and we had to squeeze through little holes inside it. We also saw a blue jelly fish (and I freaked out)! It was great because it was something new, something that I have never done before.

From Ella aged 12

You need to be a member

The introductory course is designed to show you the basic strokes and give you the confidence to take a club boat during a club night and paddle with other club members to develop your skills further. The course is primarily for adult members of the club – juniors are encouraged to attend junior club (Tuesdays) where coaches are provided for free. Accompanying adults can also attend the session for free.

Most people on the introductory courses gain their LCC 1 Star. We do not charge for coaching or the use of our equipment but there is a £10 booking fee to ensure the course runs.

Please either use the changing rooms just inside the canoe compound or come changed ready for the water. You need warmish things etc old trainers, tracksuit bottoms and several warm layers on top. http://www.liverpoolcanoeclub.co.uk/QandA/What%20to%20wear.html It really helps if you have a wind / waterproof jacket or cagoule. A simple walking type one will be fine. Any glasses should have a string or retainer cord on.

For Sale – Pyranha Kayak

I have 1 canoe for sale.  The larger of the two is quite old, but in good condition, having not been used for many years. I would like to sell it for about £50.  There is also a buoyancy aid, hardly used, for about £15.  There are also 2 paddles.
