Summer Lake Sessions

Our Summer Sessions at Wimbleball Lake start on 8th May and run every Wednesday through the summer

Junior coached sessions:
(£3 each): 18:30 (18:45 on the water) to 19:30

For 8 year olds and upwards. A great opportunity to get on the water and build confidence.
*Due to the popularity of our junior sessions, we usually need to operate a waiting list. To check availability, please email
Please book a place by 6pm on the Monday prior to the Wednesday Session using the form below.

Adult informal sessions
(£4 each): 19:45 to 20:30/21:00 off the water (depending on light)

These are mostly self-led paddles with an opportunity to try out our various club kit and get advice and support from other members. A programme of coached sessions will run on many of these . Join us by kayak, canoe, SUP, playboat or whatever you choose. Bring your own, or request to borrow kit from the club.

Adult coached sessions
Over summer we’ll be running a series of coached sessions for adults at the same time as the adult sessions usually run. Please follow the Exmoor Canoe Club facebook group for the latest news on these sessions

New this summer is a 6-week skill programme to take your paddling to the next level. It will run from the 15th May until the 19th June. It will be coached by Will Brett. Aimed at paddlers who have the basic skills, want to improve efficiency and learn more advanced skills. Places are limited to 8 people on a first come first served basis. This is a progressive programme and builds on the new skills week on week. To get the most out of it, it would be great if you can make all 6 sessions!

Please book your place at least 5 days prior to the session on the 15th May, by emailing to let us know your level of experience, and if you’d like to borrow kit. Please also book onto the session using the form below.

Payment for all sessions will be collected via Direct Debit.

Come along to meet us for an informal paddle at Wimbleball Lake – your first session is free! (For adults, or juniors paddling with their family, as our junior sessions are currently full).

Meet us at the Canoe Club boat shed (shared with the Rowing Club), from 7:30pm. You’ll meet some of our members and committee, we’ll sort you out with all the kit you need, and you’ll do a short, informal, accompanied paddle to make sure you’re happy with the basics, before you decide whether or not to join us as a member.

Please email so we know to expect you, and book via the form below by 6pm on the Monday prior (don’t worry, you won’t be charged for your first session).
