Is It For Me?

Experience Canoeing

A beginner course can be one or two days. It will take place on sheltered inland water. By initially remaining close to the bankside or shoreline we can comfortably coach you the basic manoeuvres and handling skills necessary to progress into open expanses of water or gently flowing rivers.

Improver Canoeing

If you’ve already acquired a fair grasp of the basic canoeing skills and you’d like to expand on your present experience base….
Here are our suggestions for your progression.
Canoe sailing: By harnessing the wind’s power with a small sail, you’ll be whipping along those big open expanses of water in rapid time. Beats the physical effort of paddling any day!
Try a river journey under the watchful guidance of a qualified instructor.
We’ll arrange transport for a pick up down stream, collect the boats at the journeys end and deliver you back to your vehicle.

The key to great coaching and instruction is to give out just the right amount of information at the correct moment. This approach makes certain that you’ll embed key skills and get the most from the experience .
The primary aims at this level are to create a fun learning environment, impart some new skills, broaden your competence level and enthuse you about more canoeing.
