Taster Sessions

KAYAK ~ SAIL ~ WINDSURF ~ SUP

We are running a series of Taster Sessions in Kayaking, Sailing, Windsurfing and Stand Up Paddle Boarding throughout the season- these are an ideal way to try out a new sport, before signing up to a course.

The cost for the 90 minute session is £15 per person for kayaking, SUP’ing, sailing or windsurfing. National Park City Festival events are FREE! All sessions must be pre-booked and paid for online. Please arrive 20 minutes before the session starts to book in and get changed and allow a similar time afterwards. We will supply dinghy or windsurfer, SUP board, kayak and paddles plus cagoule and buoyancy aid. You will be in a coached group for the whole session.

We have a range of sessions including RYA’s “Push the Boat Out” (PTBO), British Canoeing’s “Go Canoeing” (GC), London Borough of Barnet’s “Silver Sunday” for the over 55’s and National Park City Festival. To book onto these courses, click on the blue button which will take you to our WebCollect page where you can register and pay online.

The Mayor of London’s National Park City Festival invites you to discover London’s amazing outdoors with hundreds of free events across the city, from outdoor fitness sessions and live performances to bee-keeping and open water events for the family. We are working with the National Park City Foundation, other partners and Londoners to make London the world’s first National Park City. Join an event from 20 to 28 July, and let’s together make our city greener, healthier and wilder.
