Tower Hamlets Canoe Club
Tower Hamlets Canoe Club is starting a canoeing and kayaking program for blind and partially sighted people on 15 March 2022. Please get in touch to find out more and book a place.
Sessions will be free and held on Tuesday evenings at Shadwell Basin, a sheltered body of flat water next to the River Thames in East London.
You will have the opportunity to develop your paddling skills in a boat steered and navigated by a sighted coach or assistant. You will be taught how to steer the boat yourself and may even progress to paddling a boat on your own. Help with navigating will still be provided by coaches, plus perhaps some audio technology. Sessions will be based around your particular needs so that you can learn and develop at your own pace. You will be getting out on the water in your first session.
Coaches are all trained in first aid and safety and rescue techniques. They also have visual awareness training.
