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!
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).
