Free Training Days


Are you new to the Regatta? Do you need some help dusting off your paddles after two summers off? Or can you just not work out how to stop that canoe from sinking?!

Whatever help you need, we’re on hand with two free training sessions this summer. On Sunday 19th June and Sunday 10th July between 2 and 4pm, our experienced trainers will be available at Wargrave Boat Club to provide top tips and coaching.

As always, there will be a shuttle ferry running from the Shiplake river bank and there is no need to book – just turn up on the day!

The training sessions will take place at Wargrave Boat Club, Station Road, Wargrave, RG10 8EU. Under 17s must be accompanied by an adult (they’ll also be required to wear a lifejacket). All attendees must be able to swim.

You don’t need any special clothing but shorts or leggings & t-shirt or sweatshirt & trainers work well. And bring a change of clothes if you’re trying the punting!

Wargrave Boat Club will have refreshments for sale, and changing facilities. Parking is along Station Road, or there’s ample bicycle parking down at the club. More information is here:
