Week of Watersports - Evenings

A week-long introduction to the watersports world and to Islington Boat Club, an RYA approved training centre staffed with Canoe England registered instructors. The City Road Basin is a lovely scenic place to get on the water - a historic canal facility not far from Angel.

You will get to try the following fun activities:

  • Kayaking
  • Narrow-boating
  • Stand up paddle-boarding
  • Bell-boating

Everyone will have an opportunity to gain the British Canoeing Start certificate.

You don't have to be able to swim but a good level of water confidence is an advantage. Life jackets and all necessary boating equipment will be provided.
