3 Star Canoe - Training and Assessment

Venue: Llyn Padarn, Llanberis and Four Mile Bridge, Anglesey

Dates: 28th-29th January 2014

Times: Course starts 0900hrs. Aiming to finish by 1700hrs. 

Equipment: We will carry out paddling on flat water, open water and white water up to grade 2, both solo and tandem.  Bring your own boat that is fitted with adequate buoyancy if you have one- if you need to borrow one please ask and arrange this with me well before the start of the course.

If you have items of kit from the list below please bring it. Otherwise I will bring a range of equipment for use on the course.

Throwline                     Buoyancy Aid and Helmet

Paddles                        Knife                            

Whistle                        Canoe Pole

By its very nature this is a very practical course.  Although we will keep the amount of time spent in the water to a minimum, you should prepare to get wet.  You will need to provide food and drink for yourself for the days and something to keep this dry in - we will be away from the vehicles all day.

The course is available as a one day assessment only option, or the full three days - please choose the correct course from the drop down menu when paying by PayPal and indicate on the booking form.
