Meet the Committee

These are the people elected at our annual AGM who help to run Isis CC on a day-to-day basis. Everyone does it for the love of it, they are all voluntary positions - getting people out on the water is just something we all enjoy doing!
Each member of the committee provides a report at the annual AGM about their activities throughout the year.


Adam Hardy

Adam is the brains behind Isis CC. He spends a lot of time organising meetings with the committee members and coaches to ensure that all the cogs of our well oiled machine are in working order, and cracks the whip if they aren't. Adam's relaxed and friendly demeanour sets the tone for Isis CC.

Vice Chair

supports the chair and takes over in his absence, being the voice of reason and making sure he is correctly dressed etc...


Liam Challis

Liam is in charge of the Isis CC purse strings. He keeps our accounts up-to-date with an impressive spreadsheet detailing all our income and expenditure. Liam also manages all the club's membership and course fees. He's the person we go to if we want to buy new resources for the club.


Rach Lardner

Rach is the first point of contact for the club if you have a general enquiry. She'll make sure your email is forwarded to the correct person faster than lightening. If you have a general query, and you don't know who to call, Rach is probably your woman.

Membership Secretary

Liam Challis

Poor Liam, not only does he manage Isis CC's accounts, but he also keeps track of our members too. Liam is the person to go to for a membership form or if you have a query about joining the club. He liaises with our Course Director about the courses to make sure that allour members are present and correct.

Social Secretary

Kerstin Jurkschat

Our beloved social secs keep the fun going when we're not on the river organising all manner of events from bowling and brewery tours to Isis staples such as the Summer Ball and the Xmas Dinner. Got an idea for a social, drop Sharon an email.

Course Director

Helen Walker

We try to introduce lots of people to paddlesport each year and this is thanks to Adams 's meticulous planning of our courses, and making sure we have enough coaches and helpers on the water to keep you safe. Adam also coaches on the courses himself to make sure they run smoothly. If you want to join one of our courses, contact Adam first to check that it will be suitable for you, and that we have space left, because they are very popular.

Course Secretary

Adam Hardy

The course sec is the first point of contact for most of our newbies. Tired of spending the weekend playing tiddlywinks? Get yourself into a boat and learn how to paddle. Email the Course Secretary to sign up or for any course related questions in general.

Penny assists aspiring coaches with the enigmatic process that is involved with applying, training and qualifying and also finds grants to make their route into coaching easier on the wallet.

Kit Admiral

Helena has the thankless task of ensuring the kit is up to scratch and usable as well as organing maintenance days to get the kit ready for the next season.
