Basic Canoeing

Description: Basic Canoeing or flat water training teaches the basic canoeing skills and the course is designed for those with little or no experience. By the end of the course you will be well on your way to feeling safe and comfortable paddling on quiet and protected waters. On this course we learn the basic paddle strokes, canoe manoeuvres and canoeing related safety. We start with paddling tandem in a canoe. Once we have become comfortable in both the bow and stern positions in the tandem canoe we move on to applying the same strokes while paddling solo in a canoe. On the Basic Canoeing course you will learn how to turn your canoe, paddle in straight lines and land safely at a dock and shoreline. Essentially, you will begin to make the canoe do what you want it to do. This is the place to start your canoe paddling journey.

A combined Basic Canoeing Levels 1,2,3 and 4 course is also a good place for those who have been paddling for some time but without any formal instruction or coaching to learn proper technique and thus dramatically increase their efficiency and safety in a canoe. You will learn how to be in control of your canoe in wind and waves.
