Who are GSK?

Welcome to the website of Gosport Scout Kayaking (GSK). We are an organisation, based in Gosport, that principally facilitates the provision of Paddlesports (mainly canoeing and kayaking) to members of the Scout and Guide Associations in Southern Hampshire.

Our high quality Paddlesport Taster sessions and courses are delivered by a team of friendly, enthusiastic, and experienced volunteer coaches; all of whom are members of the Scout Association. In fact, many of our coaches and instructors have started their own Paddlesports journeys with GSK! We offer a range of British Canoeing courses, bespoke GSK courses and guided trips - so there is something for everyone!
