The canoe course is designed to teach you the basic skills so you can control your canoe and self-rescue on flatwater. The first day is spent learning the strokes and canoe control, which is done through instruction and games. On the second day, the morning is spent revising and refreshing your skills before you set off on a trip down the river – flatwater only.
