Activity Highlights:

This course will run on 27 March, 13 April and 24 June 2024.

A fun, relaxed way to learn important safety and rescue techniques in a sheltered environment.

On a British Canoeing Paddlesport Safety and Rescue course we will show you quick, simple and effective strategies to deal with the common problems we encounter on flat water.  You will work out how to rescue people from the water in a wide variety of situations. We will make it easy to empty large boats and little boats alike with simple safe solutions.

We guarantee that even the most experienced paddler will take away something new from this course.

Use our range of high quality boats to practice the most up to date rescue techniques. This is definitely the most fun you can have around, on and in the water.

 

Topics covered on the course include:

  • Safety and rescue protocols.
  • Equipment checks.
  • Simple bank based rescues.
  • Use of throwlines.
  • Towing boats and swimmers.
  • Techniques used to empty a variety of boats including white water kayaks, canoes and sea kayaks.
  • Assisting swimmers back into their boat.
  • Dealing with unconscious kayakers.

This course is a pre-requisite for the British Canoeing Paddlesport Instructor course. The PSRC also works extremely well as a standalone rescue course for all who paddle on sheltered or open water.

On most courses students only start swimming in the water during the afternoon, however during the colder months of the year you may want to hire a drysuit for this course. Rest assured that we coaches will spend more time in the water than you.  Our coaches are well aware that many individuals don’t enjoy being upside down in kayaks for a prolonged period. Don’t worry as we are very happy to hang about while you rescue us.
