Taster session session format
The Taster session aims to cover Club facilities, procedures and rules, when and where you can paddle, as well as ensure that you are able to perform the basic canoeing strokes, capsize and rescue skills while being responsible for your own safety on the water.
Paddle & familiarisation
After changing into suitable paddling kit, kayaks/canoes, buoyancy aids and paddles will be allocated before we are ready to go out on Bewl Water for a paddle and to learn about safety on the water. You will have the opportunity to learn basic paddling techniques. Also optionally, capsize and recovery skills under the guidance of a qualified coach. You will also find out about the Club, safety rules, and facilities available to us, and when and where you can paddle.
What to bring
Whatever the weather forecast, bring a towel, windproof/waterproof top, sun cream, water bottle, clothes and shoes you don't mind getting wet and a warm change of clothing for after the paddle. Shower facilities are available if you would like to take a nice warm shower! If the water temperature is cold/cool (ie below 15 degrees, please bring along a wet-suit or dry-suit if you have one. You may also like to bring a picnic to enjoy after the paddle.
