Canoe with the OCA – try canoeing first hand!
The Open Canoe Association was founded in 1956 and exists to promote the use of open canoes for self-reliant adventure, exploration, journeying and self-development.
Members of the OCA explore, cherish, protect, and enjoy the diverse waterways of the UK and beyond, from steep creeks and sea lochs in Scotland to the classic rivers of the Massif Central and from quiet backwaters of the Norfolk Broads to some of the most legendary extended trips of the Northern Territories.
At the show you can learn about flat water ‘freestyle’ paddling with opportunities to paddle with style. This, along with beginners’ sessions and Thames river trips should make for a great weekend of paddling for all ages.
