To get 2023 off to a great start we are launching the first two weeks of our Workshops, Workouts and Wellness Online series. These workshops will be facilitated by some brilliant experts and some highly experienced members of the Paddlesports community. This series is in support of the Sport Ireland Winter Initiative, aimed at getting people out and active during the winter months. Over the next 2 months we will have some fantastic workshops and workouts scheduled for our members, after which they will be available online. The first 2 weeks of workshops are now available to book at €5 per workshop for all 2023 CI members, €10 to non-members. Over the series we will have several free workshops aimed at improving the safety and sustainability of our sport. Find the calendar for the first 2 weeks and bookings below –
