Intermediate Kayaking and Canoeing (BCU 2 Star Course)
Inspired by our success at the London Olympics, then now is the time to think about starting this exciting sport. If you've already been in a kayak or canoe and have mastered the basic strokes, then one of these courses would be suitable for you to extend these skills in a safe and fun way!
BCU 2 Star Course (2 day courses)
Dartmoor is a wonderful area with over 385 square miles of wilderness terrain, with many excellent Kayaking and Canoeing venues.This course has 2 full days starting with lake skills in kayak and canoe focussing on stroke development in a fun way. In this time you learn new strokes, self-rescue techniques, securing and launch safety. Day 2 will test these skills on moving water as well as learning to tackling small rapids and portage techniques, as you move from the river into the canal.
Accommodation is available at an extra cost for those who want to stay overnight.
2 Day course £99.00 per person (course tuition only, accommodation extra). Accommodation and Meals available at discounted price.
