The Objectives

You'll demonstrate the level of performance as set by British Canoeing, involving a level of personal skill, leadership and rescues appropriate in advanced situations.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect

You'll spend two days on advanced rivers of grade 4. We'll aim be on two different styles of river e.g. light and technical and bigger volume, depending on water levels.

Experience Required

Relevant and up-to-date personal paddling and leadership skills, as well as an advanced white water safety and rescue training course within the last 3 years. You'll need to register with British Canoeing before attendance.

We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal, you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified staff, to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. As this is an assessment, you're expected to be self-sufficient for equipment (access to our extensive range is the norm on our courses for future reference). However, we have an extensive fleet of sea kayaks, so if you're travelling some distance, we can provide you with one.
