Boxing Day Walk 2023 (Mark Lewis)

The usual beautiful day at the dam. Don't miss it next year. No sign of any swimming or sailing but conditions were ideal. The mince pies and mulled wine rounded off the walk.

Exciting times for Paddle Boarders at Scaling (Gemma Scire)

As we say goodbye to 2023 and look forward to 2024, we're excited about the possibilities for paddling at Scaling and further afield. The Club have recently changed to a Sailing and Watersports Club, a real signal that we're a fundamental part of the Club as it develops.

As we build our teaching and coaching capacity this will allow us to introduce even more people to the sport we have such a passion for. At the same time we know we can all keep developing so that all paddlers are more able to stay safe, stay healthy and injury free, build skills & confidence, and most of all love Paddleboarding even more!

We've got a real opportunity to make use of all the Club has to offer, whether as a group we're planning informal paddles, race formats, socials, expeditions, skills development, discipline specialisms, or events (roll on Paddlefest 2024). It's all for us to decide!

Looking forward to paddling, fun and friendship in 2024!

Gemma, Tracy, Deb and Nicky

Give us a shout if you've any questions, ideas or thoughts. All welcome

Keep using the club through the winter! (Phil Dickinson)

Don't forget, you can keep using the club through the winter. Remember you need to buddy up, and make sure you stay warm enough. Changing rooms are accessible via the keypads - please can you make sure that the lights are switched off and the doors are locked when you leave (with keypads not left on the latch).
