6. Please wear appropriate footwear – in addition to boats we will be working along the banks - Helmets and BAs must be worn at all times.

Skills to include (in brief):

Recovery of Equipment

Chase Boating

Recovering Boats

Although these days are, I hope, very useful and the exchange of ideas very productive they are no substitute for attending a course provided by a qualified Coach who has years of experience in providing safety courses and through their position is constantly kept up to to date with current best practice.

I am hoping that days like these will encourage people to engage with further education from professional Coaches. The breadth of experience and expertise demonstrated by participants who have attended previous courses could very easily convert to British Canoeing approved qualifications.

Hello Mark. Please accept my apologies but a family matter has arisen meaning I can't make tomorrow. Sorry for the late notice & hopefully Tom P can fill the gap. Kind Regards Mike Chadwick
