Canoeing/ Open boating.

Paddling courses are designed and tailored to your needs, increasing your ability to perform in these dynamic environments. Paddling is challenging, multi dimensional and requires you to master a repertoire of skills to be able to react to changing situations. The courses on offer utilise and draw from expertise to develop your skills and awareness in open canoes.

Courses can be designed to cater for individual needs. These could include one-to-one or small group sessions and can focus on paddling in a more dynamic river environment, personal safety, group leadership, a BCU assessment or a combination of courses. Whatever your needs, my aim is to improve your skills.
