Canoeing and Powerboating

Canoeing and Powerboating

The water based activities include both canoeing and powerboating. We use a 5 metre RIB based at Bradwell Ecc Outdoors Centre, from March to November - taking part in navigation skills, teaching young people to use the boat, care for it, and out on the Blackwater Estuary to rescue and watch mammal bird life and general wildlife. We also help with beach and shore clearance.
The RNLI in Harwich are our mentors and partners, and some years, we help to provide volunteers for them for fund raising and during the annual Boat Festival weekend in July. The canoeing programme takes place at Hoe Mill Lock Ulting during the summer months. We have eight canoes / kayaks and one indian open canoe too.
