Where to Paddle


I have a canoe, what should I do now?

Your State association is your best first call. They will beable to determine the type of paddling that you enjoy and direct you to the club that best suits your needs. Local clubs will often have days when you can come and try canoeing for little or no cost. They will also have experienced members who will be able to talk to you about the different aspects of canoeing and maybe even give you a few pointers on your technique. You can search for you local club here or you can contact your State Body who will be able to put you in touch with a club that meets your requirements.
