It will be a first come first serve.We also have XS boats so size / age is not a problem.At this event we will have the rafts and inflatables out. We will be there to support all at the venue and will even do an intro to play boating, so if no one has ever done it we will give them some coaching. It is all completely free’ For more details, or to book boats, contact Sara at

LVPC’s Club Constitution

At our November 2023 EGM, some updates were made to our Club Constitution to move the timing of the LVPC AGM so it could take place at a reasonable time before the start of each Club Membership Year. The Club also introduced a new standard membership rate to support the development of flatwater and new starter paddling initiatives.
