Welcome

(we love canoeing and kayaking)

Based in Darley Abbey in Derby, we have a state of the art club house on the banks of the beautiful river Derwent. We have a large number of club members who regularly participate in nearly all forms of canoeing.

New members of all abilities (novice to expert) and of all ages (kids, teenagers, families) are all welcome. We are able to provide equipment, coaching, and other like minded canoers to ultimately have as much fun as possible.

We are a none profit charity run by club volunteers and affiliated with the British Canoeing governing body.
