SVCC is a BC affiliated club run by its members, all of whom are volunteers, and many of whom are BC qualified. We are very family oriented and have all age groups coming to our club.

We run many trips through the year from flat water open canoe trips, often involving a pub or cafe, to 10 mile blasts down grade 3-4 white water. There is also opportunity to explore sea kayaking during the summer months.

We welcome also non-members along to our pool sessions, and trips where suitable experience can be demonstrated, but ask after two attendances that membership be taken up to meet our insurance requirements.

Our membership year runs from April - March and members are entitled to attend all of our pool sessions and trips (where suitably experienced) and are more than welcome to join in the running of the club.

  • Adult- £17
