Kayak Sprint

Kayak Slalom


When we say 'paddlesports', we mean canoeing and kayaking. In a kayak, the ‘paddler’ competes in a sitting position with a double-ended paddle. But the canoe ‘paddler’ kneels in the boat using a single-bladed paddle. Paddlesports offer something for everyone, from steady touring on calm waters to sprint racing and raging torrents. There are two types of kayak race: Sprint and Slalom. PRO FACT Our alumni, Richard Hounslow, won an Olympic silver medal in 2012 in the Kayak Slalom C2 competition.
