It is the season for white water kayakers and canoeists to get out and enjoy themselves – the rivers have certainly been at great paddling levels this Autumn. Recent incidents and tragic accidents happening to people going paddling on rivers reminds us of the critical importance of having both a well developed understanding of the potential hazards on WW rivers coupled to a range of strategies to deploy appropriately should things not go to plan.
British Canoeing’s White Water Safety & Rescue course is aimed at those paddling canoes and kayaks on moderate white water (grade 1-3). It is an attendance only course over two days which helps you identify issues whilst paddling, to make good judgments and decisions, to avoid getting into trouble and to sort things out if they do go wrong. All WW kayakers and canoeists should take this course.
Steve’s next WWSR course is 24th – 25th Nov, he may also put an additional one on on the 8th & 9th Dec. Please get in touch if you would like to join in or wish to know more about the content: 07796 213817 and firstname.lastname@example.org
