This is a flat water
Division 4, 12 gate short course, and is an ideal introduction to slalom.
Racing is held on the
River Frome right next to the clubhouse with changing rooms and showers. Light
refreshments (drinks and cakes) are available during the day in the clubhouse.
The clubhouse is a short walk to town centre shops. There is free parking
(Sundays) in the car park.
The clubhouse is in the centre of Frome next to the Cheese & Grain. From Market
Place / North Parade turn in to Bridge Street and into the large car park. Drive
to the far end and to the right. Note the post code will take you to the Library
on the other side of the car park.

otherwise completely flat water, without enough current to affect the boat.
Even courses that are usually easy can become
dangerous in exceptional high water conditions. If in doubt, seek advice or stay
off the water.
POSTCODES: Bits of river don't really have
postcodes: we show the one for the nearest address we can trace. Putting these
into your satnav should get you somewhere near the site, but you might find yourself ½ km away,
and even on the wrong side of the river. If you can offer a better postcode for
any of the courses, email it to
