The club facilities, shared with Pretoria Sailing Club (PSC), are located within the Rietvlei Nature Reserve. This unique location has many benefits but also poses some unique requirements and risks.
The reserve is home to hippos which are often sighted in the dam. These animals should be treated with respect and should be given a wide zone when sited. Members and visitors are to report all hippo sightings to a club committee member. This is a known risk, and it remains the members, and visitors, decision to make use of the dam.
All dam users are to comply with the following rules and regulations.
Failure to comply with these conditions will jeopardise the club’s position within the reserve. Members found to be guilty of infringement will be disciplined accordingly.
Access to the club premises and use of the dam and running trails are at the members’ own risk.
Beginner lessons and coaching are available to new members and parties interested in membership. CCC allows two visits, accompanied by a committee member, to try your handat the sport whereafter you will be encouraged to join the club.
CCC is privileged to boast a certified Internarial Canoe Federation (ICF) level 1 club coach. Our coach’s skills are improved by frequent attendance of coaching camps. Our club coach will provide two beginner lessons which are included in the joining fee. Should more lessons be required a package of three 45min sessions for R200 can be purchased directly from the club coach.
Following these initial sessions, the best way to learn is to practice.
The club boasts many experience paddlers who are always willing to provide guidance and advice to beginners.
