Break Out Canoe Club is run by the canoeing activities section of Leicestershire Scouts serving the South of the County. Members are drawn from Scout Groups across Leicestershire.
We operate from Hinckley Water Activities Training Centre, at Hinckley Wharf. Access to the centre is via an unmade track that lies between The Wharf public house and the Simla restaurant on the Coventry Road. Pass through the double gates beyond the pub, and you'll find the Centre about fifty metres further on through the first set of double gates on the left. Please be careful when driving along this track - it is often pot-holed and is particularly bad after rain.

When approaching from the south on the M1, take the Lutterworth exit (Junction 20). Follow the A4303 towards Magna Park, and then take the A5 north. Stay on the A5 through the M69 junction, until you get to the junction with the A47. Take the third exit on this roundabout, signposted Hinckley. This is the Coventry Road (B4666). The site is a little under a mile along the Coventry Road on the right.
If approaching from the north on the M1, take the M69, and then exit at Junction 1. Take the A5 northbound and follow the directions above.
From the East, take the M6 and M69, and from the West, the A14 and M1 to Lutterworth.
In March of 2009 we became a British Canoe Union (BCU) affiliated Junior Club; affiliation number 100584.
