National Go Canoeing Week 2016 - Join The Journey!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to paddle at least one mile this National Go Canoeing Week!

It doesn’t matter if you have never picked up a paddle before, we can help to get you safely on the water and discovering the joys of this fantastic sport!

Paddle sport encompasses a wide variety of different activities in an assortment of craft. From stable open canoes and sit on top kayaks to fun playboats or swifter touring kayaks the possibilities are endless!

For this year’s National Go Canoeing Week we are sending the Go Canoeing mascot, MacGregor, on a virtual journey around the UK. He will be visiting important paddle sport landmarks as well as clubs and centres to improve his paddling skills.

Once MacGregor has completed his tour of the UK he will be heading on to Rio and the Olympics! You can follow MacGregors journey on this site or through Twitter and Facebook.

This journey will total 30,000 miles and MacGregor needs your paddle power to get him moving.

There are challenges and events taking place nationwide from 28th May to 5th June. You can find your perfect way to Join The Journey on our Take Part page.
