Keep Up To Date
All of our planned and impromptu activites are arranged on Facebook and Yahoo Groups. Check them out for the latest happenings! Also check out the club calendar for scheduled events.
Want to come and have a chat? Our clubhouse is located directly under the Marlow side of Marlow Bridge (brown wood walls). There will be someone there at about 09:30 every Sunday. See the contact page for a map.
We are a club which caters for just about every branch of recreational canoeing, including white water kayaking, open canoeing, sea touring and inland touring. There are also a few members who take competitive canoeing (in various disciplines) seriously. The following will give you a flavour of the club, however you can find out more by contacting us.
We take every possible precaution to minimise risk in participating in paddlesport from making sure that everyone is happy coming out of their boat on flat water to organising Whitewater Safety and Rescue courses.
The committee members of Marlow CC are very aware of their responsibilities towards novice canoeists. The club has a Health and Safety Manual that governs activities. At club meets, there will be a suitably experienced responsible adult who will oversee that meet. The club has a number of British Canoeing qualified instructors and river leaders that can be drawn on to ensure that activities are run in the safest way possible. On regular sessions, the Duty Office is on hand to discuss the river conditions so that you can decide whether or not to paddle.
We own a good selection of boats, including whitewater craft, flat water tourers and racing kayaks, open canoes and sea kayaks. We also have paddles, buoyancy aids, spray decks and helmets. The only things that you will need to provide for yourself will be clothing appropriate to the season and weather.
Who Can Join?
Marlow CC is an open club of primarily adult members. Those aged from 12-17 can join as junior members and children under 12 are welcome to join in when accompanied by a parent or guardian who is a member. Adult and junior members should be of British Canoeing Discover standard and we offer regular introductory courses to help members achieve the Discover award, with improver/Explore and more advanced training also available.
Canoeing is a suitable activity for many people with disabilities too and we are happy to advise on what is possible.
