Midlands Canoe Show

We are making the final preparations now for the first ever CKT Midlands Canoe Show, next Sunday, 20th May, at the Nene Whitewater Centre in Northampton. There will be loads going on for all sorts of paddlers, so wether you have only had a brief go, or are a regular paddler, you'll find something to give you a great day out!

We are also very excited to announce the attendance of Emily Jackson - a former World Champion freestyle kayaker, who will be coming to run some of the workshops on the day, and judging the competition for us too!

What's going on?

Loads of Demo boats - from our own fleet and from the top manufacturers, which you can try out on the flat water or on the white water course*

Workshops - Throughout the day there will be short workshop style coaching sessions in anything from introductions to canoe, kayak or sit-on-tops on the lovely calm River Nene, to freestyle coaching from some top paddlers.

Meet the Makers! - There will be representatives form Palm, Dagger, Jackson, Pyranha, Feelfree, Streamlyte and loads more for you to ask your burning questions.

Freestyle Competition - with classes for novice and junior paddlers on a friendly feature, and a freestyle throwdown in the pourover, including entries from Team CKT and Team Square Rock.

Evening Entertainment - Daz Clarkson is coming to tell us all about his recent trip soloing down Everest, as well as his life and travels around the world kayaking! Nigel Markey will also be attending to provide a video talk about his recent trip to Chile.

So, where can I find out more about this amazing, not to be missed, day?

We have just launched the Midlands Canoe Show website, where you can find all the info you need, and can even book your workshops online. View
