Taster sessions can be arranged normally for people with some experience of paddling or returning to the sport. If you have arranged to do a taster session please fill in a form before you paddle so we have emergency details and contacts. No one is allowed on the water without being a member or having filled in a taster session form.

Where are we?
From the A47 Norwich Southern Bypass, turn off at the exit with the A146 Lowestoft Road and follow signs for City Centre, Whitlingham Country Park, Ski Slope and Trowse. At the roundabout take the exit signposted Trowse. After approximately 300 metres take the left turning opposite the church, into Whitlingham Lane. Follow this lane for approximately 1000 metres past our old clubhouse, enter Whitlingham Country Park and use one of the three car parks on the left.
Now on foot, follow signs to Whitlingham Outdoor Education Centre. The footpath will take you in between Whitlingham Great Broad and Whitlingham Little Broad. When you get to a T-junction in the path, turn left towards the boathouse.
