OUCKC (Oxford University Canoe and Kayak Club) are running come and try sessions open to everybody as a new year at Oxford begins! This is a great way to see if kayaking is for you and you could find a brand new sport to take up. As a club we do canoe polo, white water kayaking and marathon paddling, and there will be a freshers white water trip coming up later this term!
If you’re not sure where to come, make your way to Walton Well Car Park 20 mins before hand and you’ll be met and walked to the shed. A map of how to find us can be found here: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zXRsCUnbRcI0.k_Lc5n5h9s1I
The sessions will be on the 8th (Sunday of 1st) and the time table is:
11am: Canoe Polo Come & Try It
1pm: General Come & Try It
3pm: General Come & Try It
If you’re coming along to try paddling for the first time you’ll need to bring a complete change of clothes and a towel. Please note that you MUST wear a pair of old trainers or similar on the water (flip flops aren’t appropriate as they get sucked up by the bottomless mud on the riverbed). Fleecy/synthetic clothes will keep you warmer than cotton based stuff. Avoid bringing valuables as we cannot guarantee their safety (the shed will be locked when we’re on the water).
