Maybe a coffee afterwards in the Motor Museum may tempt you along !!

Aim is to offer a gentle introduction to the skills needed to join a river trip. Instruction/ coaching included.

These session will be a valuable learning opportunity, to gain confidence; for those with limited river experienced, improvers with a few rivers in the bag, as a refresher for those returning to rivers or to hone skills.

Minimum requirement is ability to control your kayak accurately and confidently on flat water. Warm clothing essential and ability to smile in the event of a capsize.

Location will be determined by water levels. Maybe, likely involve spending  some time at one location introducing and refining skills followed by a short downriver section.

The session will be lead by club members who are seeking their 4 * leaders award , supported by more a more experienced paddler.

Your own kit is best but we may be able top arrange  to borrow if necessary.
