The session will cover

         Kit review

         Basic boat set up and safety

         Paddling technique on moving water

         Moving water hazards

         Paddling in a group

         What to do in the event of a capsize (your’s or someone else’s)

         Anything else you want to know!

Bring snacks and a hot drink etc.

Will confirm details here by 7pm the evening before.

Hi 

At the moment we only have 2 people signed up for this trip . You will have noticed that the river levels are extremely low at the moment , particularly for open boats . Can I suggest we cancel this trip, and I will rearrange when the river levels have risen . Please can you contact me to confirm you have received this message. Rob G
