Equipment Loan

Edge Paddling Club members can loan kit for use by themselves.

All use of club equipment must ALWAYS be requested by using the form below, detailing which equipment is required and when it's being removed and returned.

Under no circumstances should our boats or other equipment be taken from the arch or canal base unless your equipment request has been processed and agreed in advance (you should receive an email confirmation confirming your request is successful).

There is a charge of £10 per day for the use of kayaks/canoes.

Equipment is hired out on a trust-basis, you are liable for any damage or loss at the discretion of the Club Committee. Note that most paddlers start out begging and borrowing from others before building up stashes of kit – try that too!

*Note any borrowing of club equipment for personal use, is done so completely at your own risk.
