Saturday 21st Feb Whitewater Training

This week the whitewater training session will take place at Sowerby Bridge. This stretch of the Calder is the home of Halifax Canoe Club and the river has been developed for slalom training.

The course consists of several small weirs with large pools below making it safe for most skill levels.

The plan is to meet here: HX6 1AN in the car park around 12.45, please ensure you have the correct paddling kit and ensure you wrap up warm as we all will get quite wet (including me).

If anyone needs any kit etc. or has any questions please contact me at:

Please let me know if you plan to attend just in case we need to change venue due to water levels etc.

Here you can see some of our members having a bit of fun:
