Royal Navy Canoeing and Kayaking

Aligned with British Canoeing (BC), we can provide you with opportunities in canoeing and kayaking across all kinds of paddlesport disciplines. such as: Freestyle, White-water Racing, Canoe Polo, Sea Kayaking, Sprint & Marathon, Olympic, Surf and Slalom.

Our main focus is the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe race, an epic ultra-marathon taking place each Easter weekend. At 125 miles long, it is the longest non-stop canoe race in the world which also includes numerous locks to navigate, adding a considerable amount of running involved to the arduous paddling.
