Club Trips

At Richmond Canoe Club, apart from taking part in  races and competitive events, we also organize / join various trips throughout the year. See below for list of current events our paddlers get involved in.

The touring group aims to explore new stretches of water and their associated paddling challenges. It’s open to everyone. We meet at the club at about 8:30am and return in the early evening. We share cars, so if you have a car that could be used and especially if you’re able to carry kayaks (with roof racks plus V-bars), please let us know.

  • May 8th  ~ London’s Urban Ring (12-14 miles)
