Pinkston White Water Course
The Artificial White-water Course is canoeing’s equivalent of an artificial ski slope. It takes a concrete channel 10 metres wide and pumps 7 tons of water a second down a short but exhilarating and challenging white-water ride.
In the Spring, Summer and Autumn the club will run sessions 3 sessions a month. One of these sessions is coached and is suitable for members that are looking to progress their white water skills. The other 2 sessions are supported and open sessions are require paddlers to meet a set standard before attending. These sessions run on a Tuesday from 1900 to 2030. All of this time the white water course will be running with the outflow available for warm-ups.
In the winter we only run 2 open sessions between the times of 19.30 to 20.30.
