Half Day Open Canoe Trip and Paddle Start Award


Venue: Hampstead Lane, Yalding, Kent ME18 6HG   Venue

Why not join us for a leisurely half day's paddling on the river Medway at Yalding. During the trip, we will cover all the skills needed to pass the new British Canoeing Paddle Start Award. Each participant will receive a certificate at the end of the day.

This event is led by Grant Scamell - BCU Level 5 Coach. We will take a leisurely paddle up the river Medway from Yalding to Sluice Weir where we will have lunch. On the return journey we will be able to "shoot" the Sluice Weir canoe pass which are the most challenging on the river. Don't worry, you can always portage this if you prefer (top tip - it's harder work though!).

Course cost 60 per person

  • A day's coaching/leadership by Grant Scamell - BCU Level 5 Coach.
