In addition the club provides cags, buoyancy aids, helmets, spray decks and a selection of paddles providing you with the essential equipment you need to get on the water. You get use of all the club equipment. You don't need to buy any gear at all when you join! Turn up, pick your boat, paddle, helmet, spray deck, buoyancy aid and go paddling! A great way to get into the sport without the usual expense.

  2. There is no off-season
    Club peer paddles are year round. In fact there are on average 2 outings, per week, in the summer months, and at least 1 a week in the winter months so there is no off-season. Club trips are varied throughout the year so you get to try all the different types of kayaking - rivers, sea, surf, freestyle In addition to club nights we organize club weekends away in Ireland and even the occasional overseas adventure! If thatís not enough, as you build your confidence and experience, you can rent kayaks for your own personal use and of course any suggestions for trips and weekends away are welcome from all members.

  3. You benefit from our experience!
    Phoenix has been on the water since the early 1980ís and the enthusiasm that brought together what was originally a roof rack club still exists in the club today. We are a volunteer amateur sports club made up of like-minded people, keen to stay fit, enjoy each others company and the great outdoors, on the water! As a member of the club you will learn from more experienced kayakers in the club; increase your skills constantly with ongoing grading courses and most importantly have fun in a club of like minded people with a love for paddling.
