Welcome to the Down River Kayak Club Inc.

About us

 

The club's aim is to ensure kayak paddling on rivers continues in Canterbury. We do this in a social, safe environment and help grow the sport, skills and knowledge of paddlers.  Our objectives include:

 

  • Promote and encourage the sport of conoeing and kayaking
  • Maintain an active interest in the preservation of caonoeable waterways
  • Promote and encourage high standards of water safety

The club is aimed at paddlers with a base level of competency seeking opportunities to get on the river in a group environment.  A Grade 2 certificate is a prerequisite.  We foster an approach of safety based on personal responsibility.  Group members are encouraged to learn to use and carry appropriate safety equipment.
