Cremorne to Kew

Gorgeous day, and we all made it down to Cremorne bright and early for a paddle out west. High tide was at 1130am so we had the tide with us for a good chunk of the first leg.

Before we knew it we were at Kew, in fact we were there by 1145 so […]

Drama and manoeuvres in Shepperton

As training sessions go, this one seemed to skip along happily like a kayaker in the wake of a Thames party boat. The three newbies, Dan, Dave and Nick figured a beautiful autumnal day along the quiet Shepperton river banks lined with post rehab rocker villas would be like chicken soup for their busy London […]

What a lovely lot of kit I got

For all of you who didn’t make it down to the open day at Cremorne Riverside yesterday, where Desperate Measures (the canoe shop) had loads of kit for us to play with (and buy), you’ll probably want to click here to read up on what you missed.  But in a nut shell, there was lots and […]

Swimming in the Thames

If a thing’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly. Swimming, for example. Some people just slap on a pair of trunks and jump right in. I like to prepare my swims a little more carefully. For the truly satisfying swim I recommend cardboard and sticky tape, in quantity. Widescreen TV boxes work pretty well. The […]

We all ‘Go Canoeing’ for a day

To help celebrate the British Canoe Union being in its 75th year, the Club teamed up with Kayaking London and Friends of Cremorne Riverside to host an open day during ‘Go Canoeing Week’ on Sunday 8 May. 

 

The day was a great success, lots of people rocked up to find out about […]

In The Coach’s Words

I’ve been under the impression that the kids’ weekend drop-in sessions at Cremorne were about kayaking. Well, on Sunday I got my impression corrected.

Sure, they kayak (that’s a given when you’re in Harry’s care), but it’s so much more than just kayaking – everything they do contains a lesson.

Read what this week’s session […]

Soggy Cardboard

Saturday 10th July 2010

What do pensioners, pre-teens, cardboard and the Thames have in common? If you’d asked me a week ago I would have been stumped. But last Saturday it became clear: cardboard canoe racing.

Saturday 10 July saw Cremorne Riverside hold its first ever cardboard canoe competition, attracting regulars and newbies, young kids […]

The project aims to engage year 5 and 6 students in paddlesport.  Worksheets will be used to learn about local history and […]
