What to bring
This is a wet course with lots of time spent on and in the water so we highly recommend either thinking carefully about what you wear.
Personal clothing –
Layers are the answer to success if you are choosing to wear a drysuit or cag and trousers, if you are choosing to wear a wetsuit them make sure its a good quality one.
Footwear is also really important as we'll be climbing around on the river bank and bed, so make sure they are grippy and attach securely to your feet.
There's always the temptation to just wear "what I always paddle in" but remember we want to stay in the learning zone so bring more layers to keep you warm!
In addition to this you will need;
- Buoyancy Aid with quick release chest harness
- Throwline – Floating high visibility rope, minimum length 15m, minimum diameter 8mm.
- River Knife – sharp, safely stowed but easily accessible single-handed.
- 2 to 3 Karabiners – Locking HMS pear shaped anodised alloy karabiners are the best.
- Tape - An un-knotted 3 – 5m length of tape webbing
- and of course a Kayak, Canoe or SUP fitted with bow and stern airbags
