Boat Club Taster Days

Boat Club Taster Day 4 Lo

These taster sessions are for beginners and will introduce you to the Islington Boast Club and the activities we offer. There will be a chance find out what it is like to be in a kayak and play some fun games on the water.

A good level of water confidence is helpful. Lifejackets will be worn at all times. All boating equipment will be provided.

What to wear or bring
Arrive in what you are going to water on the water - something old and comfortable that you don't mind getting wet
Bring a full change of clothes and footwear (incase you get wet)
Bring a packed lunch, suncream and a hat

Coronavirus - possible changes
In the event that the government advice changes, a local outbreak of the infection occurs or the coach needs to self-isolate, this course will be cancelled or postponed.  In addition, we may increase the number of available spaces if social distancing advice changes.
