Bob’s Open Canoe Weekend (32nd)
6th-8th July 2018

oca-logo

Thanks to all that came to a very successful Open Canoe Weekend with glorious weather.

Axe Vale Canoe Club in conjunction with the Open Canoe Association is proud to run Bob's Open Canoe Weekend from arrival on 6th July with main events on 7th to 8th July 2018.  

This event, based at Axmouth, Devon, is organised by Axe Vale Canoe Club in conjunction with the Open Canoe Association and was the first in Britain designed to introduce Open Canoeists to estuary and coastal canoeing.

This annual event is referred to as Bob's Open Canoe Weekend after a much loved club member Bob Ottley. As usual there will be a varied programme of skill development (equivalent 1 and 3 star BCU) and scenic paddles along the Jurassic coast. It is also a great way to make and renew friendships in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

The event starts at 17:00hrs, Friday 6th July 2018 and finishes at 16:00hrs Sunday 8th July 2018 and is based at Axmouth in Devon - camping facilities are available. You can arrive on Friday evening or early Saturday morning ready for the 09:00 start on Saturday.

We have arranged for the separate camping field as usual at Axe Farm Camping, which is located on the side of the estuary at Axmouth, and gives direct access to the water when the tide permits. The full Axe Vale Canoe Club facilities will also be available for use with courses and trips. These facilities are also used when the tide prohibits access at the site.  The site accepts caravans, motor homes and tents, however power is only available in the main field. There are toilets, showers, laundry and shop on site.

Full information, courses, skill sessions and trips is contained in the leaflet shown on the right (subject to change). Booking will open at the beginning of April.

NOTE - We have run out of canoe to be borrowed so if you book after 30 June you must bring along a canoe to attend.
