Junior Kayaking Course
The British Canoe Union's 1-star award is designed to be the first step in becoming a paddler. You'll be learning the personal paddle stokes needed to control a kayak through the water, the safety aspects of kayaking, capsize procedures and the theory behind the sport. Don't worry if this sounds a bit daunting, the course can be taken without any prior experience and is a lot of fun.
During the course you will gain all the relevant skills and theory needed for the assessment such as: safety awareness, equipment selection, launching and recovering, steering and controlling, kayaking theory, capsize drills and using spray decks.
"There's nothing better than outdoor activities to reconnect with nature. Do check there is location (reasonably) near you so that your travel footprint isn't too much of a extra cost - for the planet that is."
