Foundation Safety and Rescue Training course (FSRT)*

The objective of this training course is to teach simple and safe skills that can provide the tools to problem solve simple common paddling scenarios in flat/sheltered water regardless of the craft. You will learn:

  • Skills which will enable you to ensure the safety of yourself and others
  • Appropriate rescue skills which can be used to help you and/or others in difficulty

These skills then form the foundations for safety and rescue throughout British Canoeing awards.

Introduction to SUP

Learn how to paddle a stand-up paddle board (SUP). The course will include an introduction to moving water and a journey by SUP on Sunday.

Free Spirits

Spend Saturday on the Symonds Yat rapids practising your skills with an experienced paddler to guide you and then paddle with the group on Sunday.

Touring Trip*

2 days of canoe/kayak touring - if you would like to spend your time on longer day trips then this could be for you. The exact nature of the two days will be confirmed when we know who is paddling with us. Saturday night will be at Biblins, but Friday night could be spent camping further upstream!

General Paddle**

Use Biblins as a base for paddling on the River Wye and Symonds Yat without taking part in a course.

*Subject to demand and availability of coaches

** Subject to availability of places - paddlers on courses will take priority.
