Activity Highlights:

This course will run on 30-31st October 2023 and 24-25 February 2024. Please contact us to discuss other dates if those on the calendar do not suit. We are happy to put on a course for a small group.

Do you want to improve your canoe paddling? Journeying in the open canoe gives the opportunity to perfect a large variety of techniques.

 

We will:

  • Develop your river reading skills and improve your boat control in white water.
  • Develop modern efficient forward paddling techniques and an understanding of trim adjustment to allow you to paddle for longer in windy conditions on open water.
  • Help you get the most from the outfitting of your boat.
  • Develop your understanding of the traditional skills such as poling or rope work.
  • Give you some advanced rope work skills to help get that expensive boat off the rock.
  • On our intermediate course we will take you to wherever you are comfortable and challenge you to improve your skills.

Our highly qualified and experienced staff will push you at the pace that suits you and prepare you for a higher level of challenge as the course goes on.

Working with small student numbers these courses are tailored to the needs of the individual within the group and are very adaptable. This course focuses more towards the white water environment but we are also happy to tailor the course for open water if the group wishes.
