Over the last couple of years PHCC has been working with Dreamboats, with Wimborne Council and with the East Dorset District Council to compliment the newly developed facilities of Riverside Park (BH21 1QU)

Training in racing boats takes place on Tuesdays & Thursdays during the Summer months (from 18.30) and on Saturday mornings (from 9.00 to 11.00) with the Saturday sessions continuing throughout the year.  

It is advisable to contact the organisers (see the contacts tab) to check details and to make sure the session is running.  The club is looking to give members the opportunity of trying out K1 and other boats and can arrange - with prior knowledge - that suitable equipment is available to try.  (Numbers may limit activities.)
