Whether you're already a fan of kayaking or just want to try something new and exciting, this one-day kayaking experience is sure to be fun and memorable. Courses take place on a lake or reservoir so that you can learn to paddle and manoeuvre your kayak in a relaxing atmosphere without fear of instant overturn! Experienced instructors will brief you on safety and ensure you know how to use your equipment before you go onto the water, and then its time for some fun, mastering basic techniques and playing games. Your instructor will help you build your confidence and get over any initial problems to make sure you master all the basics needed for flat water kayaking; this experience is ideal for both those wishing to get on the British Canoe Unions star system and those who just enjoy a good giggle and splash.
Youll begin by changing into your safety clothing, and after you've had a full safety brief from your instructor, learn how to use your equipment on the shore. Then its on to the water, where you'll learn the basics and play some games. At the end of your session, you'll have the option to be assessed for the British Canoe Union Kayak 1 Star Award, but this is completely optional.
