Summer Paddlesporty Sunday
June to October, from 18:00 to 20:00
Paddlesporty Sundays at Maidenhead Sailing Club are a casual session to socialise and enjoy the sunset at the lake. Non-members are welcome at a small fee for a taster.
Winter Social Paddle
November to March, Saturday or Sunday (weather permitting) from 13:00 to 15:00.
Paddling is a great way to stay fit and relax after a long week. Explore and enjoy the lake at your own pace. If there are other paddlers on the water, you will not be alone and can get help should you need it.
Paddleboarders and kayakers are welcome to use the lake any day of the week, except during organised dinghy racing. From November to May there must be at least two boats/boards with adults on the water for safety reasons.
