Hayle Canoe Club
Affiliated to the British Canoe Union
The club is situated in the crescent of St Ives Bay, which is surrounded by three miles of soft golden sand, and enjoys panoramic views of St Ives, Carbis Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse. Our location gives easy access to an exceptional variety of paddling: Sea kayaking, leisure paddling, surf, whitewater, polo, marathon, and fishing: the club is able to provide all these disciplines within a half mile radius of our base.
The club now enjoys ‘Clubmark’ status, and all our training courses are delivered by fully qualified British Canoe Union coaches, all of which are CRB checked.
If you fancy having a go but don’t know where to begin, a good place to start would be one of our ‘Fundays’, where you can try all the equipment in safe surroundings under the guidance of our coaches, but not under any formal tuition. For details, click here.
If you have tried paddling before, and would now like to embark on an official training course, we offer the BCU Paddlesport series for adults, and for juniors we offer the Paddlepower suite of courses . Click here for further info.
If you have previous paddling experience and wish to join the club, please contact our membership secretary, Jon Beavis on 07789 943667, or email, and you will be guided in the right direction.
Please note that for safety reasons membership of the club will not be granted until successful completion of either the ‘One Star’ course, paddlepower discovery or equivalent.
For all other enquiries please use the navigation bars at the top of the page, but should you not find what you are looking for, please email the club secretary and your query will be referred to the correct person.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website, and we hope to see you on the water soon!
