    MAIDENHEAD SAILING CLUB - An informative, fun and experiential 2-hour paddleboarding session designed to help you paddle safely, deal with common emergencies on sheltered waterways and develop key paddling skills. If you plan to go ‘touring’ on paddleboards these classes will give you the necessary skills and confidence to paddle safely. The sessions can be taken just once or repeated until you feel you have fully grasped the skills.

    Hire a board with us ( £10 extra) or bring your own. You will develop your decision making and practical skills for a fun and safe time on the water, learn how to choose and effectively use equipment and understand how to assess a location and get on and off the water safely. Once on the water, we will explore different ways to manoeuvre the board as quickly as possible, which is important to keep yourself and others safe. You will also learn the best practice for self-rescue and basic skills to help other paddlers in trouble. This session could be held on either the lake or the river and we cover a few kilometres to practice newfound skills.

    Nurses, carers, fire service, police, military people, please contact us for a discount code.

    The times and dates listed don't work for you, no problem! Just message us, we have availability most days and times- lake and river.
