    In modern canoeing, or paddle sports, canoes and kayaks are often classified under the same terminology, despite the watercraft having different designs and historical uses.

    Canoeing offers something for everyone, from calm steady paced touring on canal and placid waters, to competitive sprint racing and facing the challenge of racing down white water. 

    From exploring fantastic coastal scenery by sea kayak to performing the ultimate playboat moves while ‘playing’ and ‘shredding’ the river, Canoeing offers something for everyone young or old, and you don't just have to live by the sea or along a canal to get involved, canoe clubs can be found countrywide, even in big cities!

    The recognised National Governing Body for Canoeing in the UK is the British Canoe Union, and more information can be found on www.bcu.org.uk
