*** Please ensure you wear plenty of warm layers and bring spare warm clothing & hot drinks. There will be a lot of water work and it WILL get cold! ***

This session is specifically aimed at upskilling Improver/Improver to Intermediate paddlers (beginners also welcome) with the basic safety knowledge and rescue skills needed to safely run easy rivers as a group. 

We will be covering points 1 - 4 of the LCC whitewater safety skills so please familiarise yourself with these via the below link:  


  • Bring boats, paddles and paddling kit, including helmets & drysuits, as the day will involve work in the water
  • Wear plenty of warm layers and bring spare warm clothes
  • Bring hot flask and lunch/snacks
  • Bring any safety and rescue equipment you have. Full LCC recommended kit list can be found here:
