Training Weekends

Training Weekends are a great way of developing skills further, learning new skills and enjoying paddling in some beautiful countryside.

We offer two weekends a year:


This fun weekend takes part in late June or July each year and is based at the Biblin's bunkhouse and campsite in the Forest of Dean. Paddling on the River Wye, there are usually courses for beginners and intermediate level paddlers in canoes and kayaks.  A friendly and sociable weekend, all meals are provided in the cost and we can supply all the paddling equipment you will need too. 

Date of next Biblins' Weekend: 6-8 July 2018.   Contact Steph via for further details.

Whitewater Weekend

Based in South Wales or Devon, this weekend offers the opportunity to develop whitewater paddling skills and achieve a whitewater qualification.  A great weekend to build your confidence on Grade 2 and 3 rivers.  Equipment is available for hire.  This weekend usually takes place in early November and is suitable for improving or experienced paddlers.
