The Start Award is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a place to start your paddling journey. If you’re brand new to the sport and really want to learn the basics to get started, then this is the award for you. You’ll cover everything from getting in and out of the boat, what you need to wear and paddling forward.
The course is around 7 hours in total with a meet time of 09:30.
We will provide all the necessary equipment but if you have your own and would prefer to use this, please bring it along.
This course does involve a journey so be prepared with a packed lunch and a drink.
