Training Autumn 2012
We are intending running the following three courses starting October 13th in the Pool
1. Safety and Planning for Sea Kayakers (Hugh): This involves 3 pool sessions developing rescue skills followed by 3 instruction sessions on hazards (tidal flow, over-falls, wind etc), gear and passage planning.
2. Basic Safety and Rescue (Grant): 6 weeks in the pool developing rescue techniques for both kayaks and canoes and one outdoor consolidation session. If there is demand this will be followed by a BCU Foundation Safety and Rescue Assessment.
3. Greenland Rolling (Myles). For those who want to progress from the Screw/Pawlata Roll
Grant will also be running an Intro to White Water Safety and Rescue soon
