Once a month until September in 2020

We shall be running kayak taster days on the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham. These days are an opportunity to spend about an hour in a kayak to see whether you enjoy it and would like to come back for more.

The dates are

  • Saturday 25th April
  • Saturday 16th May
  • Saturday 20th June
  • Saturday 18th July
  • Saturday 15th August
  • Saturday 12th September

 BADCC will:

  • provide you with a correctly fitted kayak, paddle and buoyancy aid for the session 
  • provide you with a cagoule if it is cool or might rain
  • provide qualified supervision for your session on the water

You will need to:

  • arrive at the wharf beside the Basingstoke Canal in Odiham
  • be suitably dressed for paddling (T-shirt, shorts or tracksuit bottoms, old training shoes - NO JEANS PLEASE)
  • bring a towel and dry clothes to change into after the session (you will get damp from drips, though we hope you will not fall in)

Taster sessions will be running from 10am to 4pm

There will be a BBQ selling burgers from 11:30am until 3pm

We do not have a changing room yet (large towels are recommended!!), but we do have a chemical toilet

The cost is £5 per person

There is no need reserve a space, but you may have to wait a short while until a kayak is available.  For more information please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
