To paddle, it will be necesssary to join a team. New Paddlers are encouraged to view the "Teams" tab on this website to find a team that may be suitable. For example, some teams may only field a Grand Masters (over 50 y.o.) team, others may have rigourous training expectations that may not suit and others may be work (corporate) teams that operate only for employees of that company.
Once you've found some prospective teams, contact them and go for a paddle. All teams are always keen to have new paddlers, and some also run "come and try days" specifically for new paddlers. If you don't have any luck in finding a team, you can contact us on our contact page, and we can help.
