Paddle Event – Tees Barrage

June 11, 2022 all-day

We will be using Sit On Top Kayaks to paddle on part of the River Tees. Our launch point is near the café at Tees Barrage and once everyone is settled, we will cover basic paddling techniques and set off.  The kayaks are very stable and easy to manoeuvre, and we can develop our paddling techniques during our journey.

The trip length can vary depending on how everyone paddles but we are aiming for a 6-mile paddle towards Preston. We plan to stop for a packed lunch break at a nice little pond. We will then head back to the café. where we we will stretch our legs and grab a drink.

Our Paddle Sports coach Lynne will then show you around the White-Water Course where Lynne and her peers train. There will be lots for you to watch as kayakers play and run the course. There may also be some Championship Slalom events running that you are free to watch. You can stay if you like and walk around. The café and toilets will be available for you to use throughout the day.

You can book your place, and find out more detail, via our Eventbrite page.
