Welcome to Exeter Uni Canoe Club!
Here you’ll find loads of information about what we do as a club; but if you can’t see what you’re looking for, then why not come meet us during term time at one of our pool sessions (Mon, Wed 20:00- 22:00 at St. Luke’s pool).
As a group of predominantly white-water kayakers, whether you’re a complete beginner (and have never heard of the sport before) or a bit of a pro that already has experience in canoeing or kayaking, we warmly invite you to come and join us for a paddle.
As a club, we also partake in polo, freestyle kayaking, flat-water racing and surf kayaking; mainly for fun but also competitively- so there are plenty of different ways to get involved! We are looking at more ways of getting involved in competitive sport through BUCS, such as slalom and wild-water racing; so join and express your interest if this is something you could see yourself doing! Who knows where it might take you…
We offer all the coaching and instruction that you’ll need to take part safely on the river (or in the surf) – for the large part free of charge! However, we also provide cheap, professionally-run external courses and qualifications tailor-made to our members.
With the region containing some of the best white-water (on Dartmoor and Exmoor in particular) and surf (the South-West generally) in the country, you’d be crazy not to come and give it a go!
From the Captain:
My name is David Brearley and I’m this year’s club captain. I am a 3rd year Engineer and have kayaked for 5 years as part of several different clubs.
All abilities and interests are well catered for in EUCC and there’s a great social vibe within the club. Our members are all friendly and meet up outside of club hours. I’ve made many good friends and some great memories during my time in the club. If you put time and effort into EUCC, it will become more than just another club, it could become a way of life as many members have found life-long friends and partners, who some have now married.
See you soon,
EUCC Captain 2016-17
