Sort out your fun-life! Join local canoeing groups. Follow, friend and meet other canoeists. Canoeing and a whole range of leisure activities.
Canoeists use a single-bladed paddle to propel a lightweight boat through water. Canoes are elegant and narrow structures, pointed at both-ends, open on top, and typically seat one or two paddlers. The activity is both recreational and competitive, and occurs in still water, white-water rapids and seawater. Recreational canoeing typically involves group touring in picturesque natural settings, or adrenaline pumping experiences in white-water. Competitive canoeing encompasses polo and sprint, marathon and slalom racing, and freestyle events.
Canoeing is an enjoyable yet strength-building activity, recognised since 1938 as an Olympic sport, and specifically good for improving cardiovascular fitness and upper body strength. It also provides access to beautiful areas of the world by water, allowing groups of canoeists to enjoy areas of natural beauty together through an environmentally-friendly and enjoyable mode of transport. Float down a stream or tense your muscles through a rapid: canoeing offers you an exhilarating way to be outside.
