Welcome to Crewe and Nantwich Canoe Club – CNCC.
We are a friendly, inclusive and fun-loving club based in Nantwich, Cheshire. We have an active membership ranging from absolute beginners, to Div 1 Slalom kayakers, sailing canoeists, white water paddlers, sea kayakers and canoeists.
We offer a varied range of activities throughout the year – including:
- Monthly trips,
- summer lake training and social sessions,
- winter pool sessions,
- star award training and assessment,
- safety courses,
- summer camps and
- social events.
We are fortunate to be supported by our group of ‘management’ volunteers who ensure that the club is running smoothly. We have a large pool of volunteer coaches and leaders who have a wealth of experience and all have National Governing Body coaching and leading qualifications as well as first aid and rescue qualifications. We are a British Canoeing affiliated club.
Crewe and Nantwich Canoe Club meets on a Wednesday Evening from 6:30 pm to 9 pm approx.
Winter and Summer Sessions
- Our pool sessions run over the winter months in Whitchurch Swimming Centre: November – May, ideal for roll practice and learning skills.
- Our summer sessions run from May – September, these include lake sessions at Astbury Mere,Congleton; moving water sessions and canal-based sessions.
Introduction to kayaking Courses
CNCC run winter pool-based Introduction to Kayaking courses, as well as lake-based Introduction to Kayaking courses in the summer months. These courses are very popular and give you the basic skills to start paddling – all kit is provided on these courses. You do not need to be a club member to attend one of our Introduction to Kayaking courses – we do, however, hope that you like us and that you join our club after your course.
