Course information

What will be in the assessment?

Under the club rules on successful completion of the assessment you can:

  • Paddle on your own;
  • Participate on club trips on moving water.

I therefore need to be confident that you will be safe to do both. What I will be looking for is that:

  • You have good control of your boat;
  • You are aware of and understand hazards and dangers you may face.

The first bit will be going on the water and me observing:

  • Confident forward paddling with good awareness of what is going on around you;
  • Turning, stopping, backwards paddling;
  • Moving the boat sideways (draw strokes)
  • Preventing capsize (low brace support).

The second bit will be covered in a short written test.
