March 5-7 BULLERFEST Want to compete kayaking, or just want a party? This isn't a UCCC endorsed trip, but you can bet there's gonna be heaps of us there. Various levels of kayaking, competition, and partying of course!
March 13 & 14 Zero to Hero #1 Our first official beginners trip of 2021! 30 of our finest beginners are ably lead by our old and new leaders and seconds in the pool, the lake, and then for two amazing days down the Hurunui River. Not to be missed, the exciting whitewater action is just the beginning, with a legendary UCCC party on the Saturday night. Don't miss the sign-up email for this one!
March 20 & 21 Girls trip For UCCCs finest female paddlers. This is a progression trip, however a large range of skills are not a prerequisite to come on this trip. Pretty much if you've seen a kayak before, this is the trip for you!
March 27 & 28 Zero to Hero #2 Our second beginners trip for the year! Exactly like the first, sign up quick to avoid missing out. This year, we are taking this trip on the road to the brilliant artificial course of Tekapo. Whether you're a complete beginner, or have been on a Z2H before, Tekapo has something for everyone.
April 2-6 WHITE WATER WEEK! An entire week devoted to kayaking in the whitewater capital of New Zealand. 5 days of kayaking, separated by 4 nights not to remember, there is plenty of whitewater to learn, and progress on. Perfect if you've done a Z2H in the past, but prior experience isn't required.
April 17 & 18 Spoonfest Combined with OUCC, the Tekapo artificial whitewater course is running this weekend. This is the last release for the Tekapo season, so head down and make the most of it!
