Improvers Moving water Weekend - Dart

Cost £60pp (£65 non-member) Includes accommodation and breakfasts both mornings.

Intended for solo or tandem. Introducing the skills required to paddle whitewater. Suitable as an introduction to the skills for 3*. Further details from Pete Seymour email: pete.seymour@opencanoe.info

These are the annual weekends on the River Dart, which are offered as an introduction to white water. We expect the
participant mix to be similar to previous years, with those who have attended before and those attending for the first time.
The experienced coach / leader team will introduce and improve your skills in the art of canoeing white-water using the lower
River Dart, which is a Grade 2 river.
If you have any concerns about your possible performance, on Saturday we have the facility to be able to place an
experienced canoeist with either solo or doubles participants. The experienced canoeist will assist to improve your skills,
confidence and experience. On the Sunday you may then paddle either solo or with your doubles partner.
If this facility is required I must be informed when your booking is made.
You MUST come equipped ready for two hard days canoeing, possibly in poor weather conditions (Note: you can expect
some bumps, scratches and scrapes on you canoe and you could get very wet).
Please ensure that you have all the equipment that you require, i.e. buoyancy aid, helmet, spare paddle, strong footwear,
flask, emergency food/hot drink, wet / dry suit etc. and adequate buoyancy at either end of the canoe.
If you have a pole and / or lining and tracking equipment, bring them and you can try them out.
The above may sound daunting, but our aim is that all participants, including the trainers will have a safe, enjoyable, learning
experience at these weekends.
If you have any queries please contact organiser.
