Try kayaking/rowing this Saturday!

The Adventure Dolphin  Club will be with us at the club session on Saturday 24th September.  Come down for 9am.

Members from Adventure Dolphin will paddle down to us in their kayaks for 9:30 and we will give them instruction and an opportunity to have a go in our boats.

At the same time GGBC members can have a go – with instruction from Adventure Dolphin –  in one of the many kayaks they paddle down to us.

Between times on the water, we will have coffee, snacks and chat !

No rowing on Sunday

There will be no 10:00 session this Sunday 11 September due to the Pangbourne Canoe Marathon which is talking place on our reach, between Mapledurham and Whitchurch locks.

The Explore Rowing session at 08:00 is also cancelled because we need to be off the water by 08:30.
However, if you are on the tow path in Reading on Sunday afternoon, look out for and give a shout out to the GGBC crew who will be taking part for the first time in the Thames Valley Explore Rowing League splash and dash races, hosted by Reading Rowing Club.
