🛶young kayak course and rental session – 𝐂𝐊𝐌𝐍𝐂

The CKMNC is a club created by 6 enthusiasts on 21 October 1982. At the beginning, the club was composed of 6 kayaks stored on a boat rack in a field east of Cherbourg.
Things quickly evolved for the marine paddling club. After a few years, the town of Tourlaville made available to the Cherbourg club an old market gardening cooperative building (currently a storage building). This new premises and the motivation of the members led the club to quickly exceed 80, then 100 then 120 members to have a rhythm around 170 members currently.
In 2009, a new building emerged to the south of the original building. A necessary tool for the development of the CKMNC. The price of the good atmosphere? The current building is beginning to be a little cramped to accommodate the associative and tourist activity of the CKMNC... The CKMNC, it's leisure, sports, competition up to the highest level (Ocean Racing/Va'a, Wave ski surfing), training, events but also and above all, an atmosphere to discover.
