Canoe Beginner (Flat Water)

This is an introductory session that gives you the opportunity to gain experience on the water and learn the basic skills needed to control your canoe. Our coaching can be tailored around your own personal aims over a period of time that suits your needs, for example a single taster day, a refresher day if you have tried canoeing before but need a reminder, or a series of days if you wish to progress further.

You will be taught the basic canoe skills needed to control your boat in a flat water environment such as a river or canal, or a sheltered bay on the sea. The emphasis is on building your confidence and developing an understanding of how to efficiently and effectively use your body, boat, paddle, and the water to manoeuvre your canoe where you want to go by experimenting with a variety of strokes and techniques.

Tuition will be guided by what you would like to learn, but could include some of the following elements:

  • Canoe strokes
  • Equipment
  • Safety issues
  • What to do in the event of a capsize and how to prevent it
  • Journey planning

Price = £150 per day (group discount rates available)
