Law to be repealed

Comment 9th July 2010


Laws to be repealed.

Let’s start with the law(s) which prohibit canoeists/kayakers from using most of the rivers in England & Wales. The majority of other civilised countries in the world, inc Scotland, seem to be able to manage this without problems – why can England not do so? The British Canoe Union has to my knowledge being attempting to gain river access since at least the 1940s & I too have been trying without success as a personal crusade. A coalition effort required?


Why does this matter?

Because there are a majority of young people in England & Wales who do not take part in team sports; canoeing & kayaking offers a well structured alternative sport which can be offered to them.
