Go through the main gate, then right at the little building on the left, then immediately right into the first car park on the right. This is where you park.

Return you car to the car park. Club members can park for free in the sailing club area at the bottom of the car park on club nights.

The club runs Paddle Fitness sessions in the evening. Meet at 7pm on the canal at the small car park off Boughton Road, Rugby.
The club occasionally meet on a Saturday morning at Draycote Water, for a Saturday Morning Paddle. Meet at 10 am, the charges for this paddle are the same as a Monday club night.
We are not planning to offer coaching support and paddlers should be able to paddle with a group round the lake without instruction.
This will be subject to there being someone available who is competent and willing to take responsibility for the group. If the paddle will go ahead we will make a decision on Friday evening and post an announcement on the Facebook group.
To help with planning, if you would like to attend please could you let us know using the booking email (or mobile number).
At least 3 competent paddlers must attend.
We may also run assessments for 1 and 2 star tests on pre-arranged dates.
