What the club is about 

Whoosh Explore offer opportunities to explore the River Stort and River Lea in Hertfordshire through a range of Adventure paddling days. We run specialist courses as well as taster sessions and self guided paddling sessions.

Our self guided paddling sessions allow paddlers to improve paddling skills with the freedom to explore the local rivers with friends with an opportunity to develop paddling skills at your own pace. Our rivers and quite backwaters offer a good opportunity to develop your independent paddling skills 

Whoosh Explore was set up in 2008 to deliver training courses and adventure education to youth groups and clubs in Bishops Stortford. 

We have since expanded the club and now offer a wide range of weekly activities on the River Stort.

Mid week paddles offer the opportunity for a social paddle with regular group trips to different rivers.
