Technically speaking, we are the canoeing section of Chester Sailing & Canoeing Club, but we are more generally known within canoeing as Chester Canoe Club. We are Chester's premier club for competition, which is the main focus but we do have recreational members and organise a number of recreational events each year. We are also the North West's top club and rank highly at National level in most of our disciplines.
We are active in Wild Water, Marathon, Sprint & Slalom and for our size do particularly well. Members of the club compete at all levels; we regularly provide members of the GB teams, but equally we are introducing new people into paddling at all levels. As well as competing, we also organize a number of events each year at National & club level.
We annually host two North West Hasler marathon races in April and September and in August 2010 we ran the National Marathon Championships on the River Dee at Chester.
