  • Description

    The Paddle Safer course is designed for anyone new to paddling, or relatively inexperienced to paddling, wanting to gain knowledge and raise their awareness of paddling safely in a sheltered water environment, in or on the craft they paddle. The typical craft would include kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, sit-on-tops and inflatables.


    The course is based on learning, and the ethos of ‘supporting the paddler’ is the main focus of the course, encouraging individuals to consider where they paddle, and the equipment they use, as well as providing practical solutions if they get into difficulty.


    The course is suitable for all ages and great for individuals, families and groups wanting to expand their safety practices when on the water. The course covers equipment, environmental factors, planning and rescues.


    Requirements

    To get the most out of this course you'll need to know how to move your craft around.

    What to bring

    As this course is all about you getting out on the water safer it'd be great if you could bring;

    1. your craft,
    2. kit for going on and in the water,
    3. shoes which will protect your feet on the beach and stay on your feet in the water,
    4. a full change of clothes.
    Itinerary

    All of the course is delivered on the beach and on/in the water we'll be looking at everything from what to bring with us, to how to make a good plan and what environmental factors to consider.

    Followed by lots of rescues to make sure you have a good idea of what to do when you're in the real world.
