Cuckmere Valley Canoe Club

Welcome to the Cuckmere Valley Canoe Club (CVCC) website. CVCC is a kayaking & canoeing club based in the beautiful setting of the Seven Sisters Country Park, between Eastbourne & Seaford on the banks of the Cuckmere River. CVCC is a family orientated club and welcomes members who are 8 years old or over, regardless of gender, race, religion or previous kayaking experience. We are primarily a club that introduces people to paddlesport and develops their skills to a competent standard. There are many directions our sport can take and the club will do its very best to guide you. Locally we are able to paddle on the flat waters of the meanders of the Cuckmere River, the tidal section of the river down to the sea and in the Cuckmere Haven bay about a mile away. Here we paddle on the sea or play in the surf when possible. Trips away from the club include those to River Medway, River Wye and various whitewater courses. 
All our coaches are British Canoeing qualified, DBS checked and insured. They are all volunteers and give their time freely to run sessions/events for the club. In additon to the general Sunday paddling sessions on the Cuckmere River, the club also runs various courses & events throughout the year - see the Club Programme for more detail.

During the summer we run Go Canoeing 'Come and Try It' sessions. Please see 'Go Canoeing' under the Information tab for more details or email if you have any questions. Please note you must be booked on one of these sessions to attend.
Our website aims to provide all the information you may need to know About Us, as well as Membership Information and the ability to signup and join online.
