Canoe and Kayak Group located in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex. We paddle for fun! Although we can coach you in the disciplines of Slalom and Freestyle.
The club coaches can also give you guidance on Surfing, White Water, Touring, and Sea Kayaking.
ACC is based at the Adur Outdoor Activities Centre in Shoreham-By-Sea, West Sussex. We meet at 0945-1000 on Sunday mornings.
October to April we run Pool sessions at Wadars Pool every Thursday Evening, where we can teach you how to roll.
We often run trips to whitewater rivers, such as the Dart or Tryweryn.
I seem to have mislaid my paddle at the club in the last couple of weeks I am hoping somebody has seen it. :-(

Sunday Session 02/07/2017
Duty Coach TBC
Location: 3rd Shoreham Scout Hut
Please note NEW EARLIER SESSION START TIMES
On the water 10:05
High Tide 06:18 (5.05m)
Low Tide 12.47 (1.62m)
An Amber Tide – Introduction to Moving Water – Improvers Welcome
The tide will be flowing out for the duration of the session.
As the tide is just over 5m it won’t be flowing that fast and would be ideal for those who have been a couple of times and are looking to progress on to the natural phenomena that is moving water.
If you have completed a deck test – come on down !
Sunday 25th June 2017
The tide provided with 2 options both rendezvousing at the harbour
• I led an action packed bumpy sea trip, battling a harsh wind and combative sea conditions, as the Libertines once said ‘A Time for Heroes’
• Robbo led a lazy calm bimble on sheltered waters
Both groups enjoyed a tide assisted blast back to base, catching the tide perfectly.
The rarely sighted Sam rocked up with guests and our very own synchronised swimming squad Danny and Lew were also in action.
Adur Canoe club were as always well represented down at Worthy Farm and members were rewarded by the Inspiring words of Jeremy Corbyn, bored by Radiohead and thrilled by British Sea Power.
Milk was offered to all campers from Worthy Farms very own diary herd at a whooping £1.20 per pint – more than the cost of membership per ACC session !
- I am heading to France for a paddling weekend. Would it be ok for me to take a club boat with me?
- If so, would anyone be able to recommend a boat? Preferably a stable touring style boat with a skeg?
Hi Matt, if it doesn't coincide with the Hamble trip, take a Flex. Just let me know the dates (4 hours ago)

Special thanks to Adrian Sadler and Jen Hagen for the most delicious cake of this summer yet:)

Whats on in Lee Valley Park
The Lee Valley Regional Park stretches an incredible 26 miles along the leafy banks of the River Lee, from Ware in Hertfordshire, through Essex, to the Thames at East India Dock Basin.
---KIT AMNESTY--- I am in the process of moving all the kit and doing a stock check at the same time. Can I have all borrowed kit back for checking off please, especially cags. We are very low on serviceable cags, in particularly the gray & orange ones. Please have a rummage and see if you have any. Thanks all.
I have a few bits from this weekend. It will be back Saturday. 1 (5 days ago)Jasmine Baker:
I have an orange cag, a helmet and a BA. I'll bring them on Sunday :) 1 (5 days ago)Dave Page:
Adie, I have a red dynamo and a nylon deck. Would like to keep a little longer please 1 (4 days ago)Nick Dowling:
Could you post a picture of one of the missing orange/gray ones Adie and see if that helps trigger some recognition/returns. There was obviously a lot of stuff moved around as part of out exodus from AOAC that people, for example, may well keep intending to return to the club but never get around to doing so. If this is you we can come and collect it :-)
I find it quite deflating that we seem to have gone from 12 of those Cags to just 6 of them in 3 or 4 years :-( (4 days ago)Adie Buckingham:

We borrowed one of these, 3 BA's & 2 junior cags for loxwood. Will bring them back this morning 1 (1 day ago)
Got an old K1 sprint kayak?
No further use for it?
Think again. Alan George shows you how to transform your ageing kayak into something more useful.
This has the potential to be as good as the Nene and a lot closer. It would be a great training facility for the club, and paddlers across the south east. Please can everyone fill in the consultation and share as widely as possible. :)
