Come and spend the day at Northampton Active on Saturday, April 6th. We'll have all our demo boats available to try, the WW course will be open in the afternoon (Access will be available at a separate cost to Northampton Active). 

Paddling opportunities

We offer beginners and seasoned paddlers alike the opportunity to explore, discover, and grow with Silverbirch. With access to the river Nene, you can grab a boat, grab a friend and 'paddle the loop' or join us for a guided river trip (details soon), our white water gurus will be hanging out on the course in the afternoon ready to help you sample our canoes.

Skill clinics

Our very own guru Greg Spencer will be leading a workshop: Smooth and efficient paddling: getting from A to B effectively, efficiently and with greater style. 

This is a paddling clinic on intermediate to advanced boat handling: from optimising the forward stroke and subtlety and setting up boats to achieve an outcome to initiating turns and using momentum with sophisticated paddle placements. 

Canoe repair workshop

Bring along your Silverbirch, and let us give it the once over or fix that niggle, our workshop and canoe-building elves will be on hand to help and advise on all boat maintenance and outfitting aspects.
