Bob’s Open Canoe Weekend (31st)
(30th June &) 1st-2nd July 2017

oca-logo

Axe Vale Canoe Club in conjunction with the Open Canoe Association is proud to run Bob's Open Canoe Weekend from arrival on 30th June with main events on 1st to 2nd July 2017.  

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 30th June 2017 and finishes at 16:00hrs Sunday 2nd July 2017 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 are contained in the leaflet shown on the right ->

Pre-registration is now closed but you can still turn up, resister and pay on the day - see the info sheet for time/location.
