Kayak and Canadian Canoeing in Edinburgh
Forth Canoe Club is a volunteer run club for canoeing in Edinburgh. We are Scotland's oldest existing canoe club and are based on the Union Canal in the city centre. Our club includes everyone from world champion athletes to recreational day trippers, paddling kayak and canadian canoes of all styles. See the activities we do at Forth.
3 members of Forth Canoe Club competed in the 2nd Garry Boater X last weekend. It was a fantastic event, well organised and laid out with a great program on some progressive water. The competition is not for the faint hearted. There are 4 rounds over the day. In each race 6 competitors start together, battling for posision as they make thier way down grade 3+ water. Forth Canoe Club came out of the Competition very well - with Willow taking First place and Matt coming 9th in the mens category, Rachel took 9th place in the Women's Category. Bring on Next Year!
Polo captain Poppy has been selected to represent the UK at the polo international in Belgium next week. Good luck Poppy!
Thanks to all from Forth CC who helped with the canal festival last weekend, we gave over 100 people taster sessions in canoes and showed off the variety of paddling we do in the club with C1 and K1 sprint, OC1, SUP and a gunwale bobbing battle on display.
