This is an introductory course. Over a weekend you will learn the basics of handling a craft with both single- and double-bladed paddles.
The aim is to provide you with the basic strokes you need to move your boat in the desired direction. You will also learn basic safety skills, so that you can exit your craft safely should you capsize.
Once you’ve done your one-star, come and take part on the Sunday sessions so you can get more experience on the river and maybe do some easy trips on flat water.
Saturday & Sunday, from 10:00 to 16:00. You will need your normal paddling kit and a packed lunch; the club will be open to lend boats paddles etc.
PLEASE NOTE: Star courses are only open to NCKC members (see website for how to join NCKC)
