About This Activity

Would you like to continue to build your confidence on the water and understanding of how to paddle with other users in sheltered water environments (canals, lakes and ungraded rivers) safely? British Canoeing 'DISCOVER' is a fun sheltered ‘inland’ course - the focus is on developing your paddling skills and knowledge on the water. This course includes what to consider when looking at the weather forecast, water etiquette, self - rescue skills, assisting another paddler, equipment to carry, clothing throughout the seasons, understanding water levels and where to find paddling routes for your very own adventures. And of course lots of paddling, time to relax on the water and socialise too. WHO IS IT FOR? Women - 18 years plus. HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS? Four women - so everyone gets lots of 1-1 support. DO I NEED PREVIOUS PADDLING EXPERIENCE? I recommend you have completed START (Intro to Paddleboarding) prior to booking this session. You must be able to self - rescue (climb unaided back onto your paddle board) and have good control of your board on the water. We will be paddling alongside other water users including canal boats, canoeists and fisherman. HOW LONG IS THE COURSE? The course is 7 hours in length and divided into both time on the water (AM) and theory (PM). The latter is delivered in a lovely cafe, so don't forget to bring money for your lunch. DO I GET A CERTIFICATE? Yes , you will get a British Canoeing Certificate. WHAT DO I PROVIDE? Board, quick release waist leash, buoyancy aid, paddle, wetsuit and dry bag. WHERE DO I DELIVER THIS SESSION? DISCOVER is delivered in Beeston (Nottingham) on the Nottingham and Beeston Canal /River Trent. ARE THERE CHANGING ROOMS & TOILETS? There are no changing rooms so please come ready to paddle (or changing discreetly). Toilets are available at the local café’s – please do support their businesses by purchasing a drink etc. PARKING? Parking is free, this is a popular spot for walkers, paddlers, cyclists and fishermen so it is at a premium! Arrive early to secure your spot and please be aware that this is a residential area so I would be very grateful if you could keep noise to a minimum. WHAT TIME DO I NEED TO ARRIVE? Please arrive 40 mins prior to the start time so you can park, meet everyone, and prep for the session. QUESTIONS? I am always happy to answer your questions via
