Explore Award - New! (Part 2)

Download as iCal file
Sunday 23 June 2019, 08:30 - 16:00
This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern

The Explore Award is the next step after the Beginner Course.  It replaces the old 2* award, and is suitable for anyone who's done the old 1*, Discover Award, or Beginner Course.  The focus of this is to build the skills needed to paddle independently and to be a confident member of a paddling group.  It will also build the foundations for other paddle disciplines - whether that's sea kayaking, touring, white water, or anything else.

We'll talk about:

  • planning a trip, taking into account the weather, environment, and water conditions
  • new skills and paddle strokes for new situations
  • efficient paddling to prepare you for longer journeys
  • and lots more!

Time: This is a two-day course, running on Saturday June 2nd and Saturday June 23rd.  You'll need to come to both days to complete the course.

Cost: Free!  We don't charge for our coaching to members at Maidstone Canoe Club.  British Canoeing charge £6 to get the certificate, payable on the day.

Food: Please bring lunch with you, as well as a drink and snacks for on the water.

Location Maidstone Canoe Club, Mill Meadow, St Peter's St, Maidstone, ME16 0SN
