Who are we?

We are a canoe club serving the South of Bristol and North Somerset.
30+ Years
Founded on 11th October 1987 (at an inaugural meeting of 27 people at the Coach House pub in Locking), we enjoy general recreational paddling on placid water, white water and the sea.
Open to All
We welcome anyone and everyone including individuals, families and accompanied children. SACC is a club for people looking to paddle with friends old and new, whether you are a beginner starting out and wanting to develop your skills or an experienced paddler looking to have fun and make new friends.

Want to have a go and join us?

During the summer season we meet every Tuesday night at various locations in North Somerset, our club trailer comes along to all theses sessions so all the kit you need can be hired for a small fee. All you need to bring is a set of clothes (inc shoes) that you don't mind getting wet. There's no need to book and there will be coaches on hand to help you.
During the winter season we have regular coached pool session. Like the Tuesday sessions all the neccessary kit is provided, you just need to bring a swim suit and rash vest. No need to book, just come along and say hi.
Check the Programme for when and where we are meeting.

Taster Sessions!

Your first 4 sessions are considered to be taster sessions so you don't need to get club membership straight away, after your 4th session if you like what we have to offer you can become a full member. Full members get full access to all club trips and events.
New to Kayaking?
During the year we run several coached sessions aimed at teaching and assessing club members. These include two training camp weekends held at Biblins youth campsite during the summer months. You can also request to be taught and assesed during the Tuesday night sessions!
