I'm really excited to announce that we have Jan Van Hees joining us from Belgium for the weekend. 
Over recent years, Jan Van Hees has become well known as a highly technical American Canoe Association certified instructor for open canoe. He runs workshops for solo and tandem, from flatwater to whitewater. 
Jan will be running sessions at Symonds Yat on Saturday aimed at OC1 or Trad moving water paddlers.
