Canoe Intermediate (Open Water)

If you have already had some experience on open water in a canoe and would now like to progress further then we can offer you coaching that is tailored to your individual needs to allow you to refine and develop your current skills, or learn some new skills. Maybe you are confident in calm conditions but would like to learn how to cope when there is more wind or waves, or you would like to learn how to make a sailing rig, or learn how to navigate in open water? Our coaching will be matched to your own personal aims to develop your 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 refining your strokes and techniques and improving your open water skills.

The course can be over a period of time that suits your needs, from a single day or a series of days if you wish to progress further. Tuition will be guided by what you would like to learn, but could include some of the following elements:

  • Canoe techniques for use in open water
  • Equipment
  • Open water safety
  • Rescues
