Welcome to the home of Pangbourne Canoe Club

Dear all

So after what seems like not alot of rain .... the river has risen and risen... all back to red boards with water well up on landing stage!
This Saturday session will be on the canal from Aldermaston.
If you need a boat please meet at club 9am to load up and leave for canal at 9.30am.
Steve Mc Cluskey and Ian Palmer are leading.
Happy paddling!
