Gloucester Canoe Club (GCC) was formed by a group of enthusiastic canoeists who wanted to offer the sport out to others. This is still the same and paddlers of all ability and experience will always be welcome. We pride ourselves on being a social and friendly club, keeping as much informality as possible, whilst maintaining sufficient structure and organisation to participate in the sport safely.
When do we meet?
The club meet generally on the first and third Tuesday evenings between March and October at our boat store. Members are there between 6 and 6.30 hatching plans for the evenings paddling and entertainment. The first Tuesday of every month is training night where experienced paddlers will be on hand to help you with all aspects of your paddling, you ask and we can sort it out. We also offer sessions on local rivers on a number of Friday evenings from April through October and try to organise tours covering a range of interests and activities. River sessions could be up or down stream ‘trips’ but also be based around skills development on moving water.
