King’s Mountaineering and Kayaking Association provides kayaks for members of the college
to use on the Cam all year round. The service is free, but you must have undertaken a safety
induction. These are usually run at the start of Michaelmas and Easter terms, so keep an eye
on your inboxes or the fresher’s fair for details, alternatively email
for more info.
Once you’ve completed your induction you are on the ‘kayaking list’ for life, just head
up to the Porters lodge to get the key. There are a few interesting places you can paddle to
, check out the board in the gear cupboard for ideas, it’ll also help you select the right
kit for the right boat.
The club runs weekly paddling sessions throughout the year, it is a great way to get out
of your room and see the sights of Cambridge, provided you don’t mind a bit of rain or snow
... or ice. In addition to the relaxed weekly paddle, look out for:
- Paddling to see the fireworks at Trinity and St. John’s May Balls.
- Whitewater training sessions at home or away to get you ready for vacation trips.
- Swimming pool sessions to get some practice in the warm for once.
- Kayak polo training or matches.
