Paddle Explore Award Courses 2019   iCal entry for this event

The British Canoeing “Paddle Explore” is an award that gives you ownership: allowing you to choose where you move next in the world of paddlesport. The course helps paddlers develop fundamental paddlesport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding of how the paddle, boat and water interact.

The award is obtained by taking an assessment in either a kayak or canoe and you can choose which craft you wish to use. Holders of the “Paddle Explore” award are able to take part in a wider choice of club activities including trips to the River Wye, River Derwent, Lee Valley Whitewater Centre, Introductory Surf Course and the Foundation Safety & Rescue Training. We will provide successful paddlers with a British Canoeing “Paddle Explore” registration which you can use to obtain a Certificate.

The river trip and assessment will be held at either the Fisheries on the Grand Union Canal or the River Beane at Hertford.

We will have a good selection of club coaches to get the best out of you on the course and we see this as a big stepping stone in your paddling.
