A new qualification from British Canoeing, teaching you how to lead, supervise or facilitate safe, quality, enjoyable trips in appropriate environmentsEquipment and Kit Information
Paddlesports has been voted the fastest growing water-sport in the UK for the 4th year running and we are proud at sportscotland Cumbrae to be at the heart of these developments. The centre is in a perfect location for Sea Kayaking, Open Water Canoeing and Stand Up Paddle Boarding and we have a wide range of modern boats and boards from some of the UK’s leading manufactures including P&H, Peak UK & Werner Paddles.
Getting wet is unavoidable so we will make sure you have the correct gear. Peak UK wet-suit, wet-suit boots, buoyancy aid, spray deck and cag top are available for your use and can be dried overnight ready for the next day’s action. You are of course welcome to use any of your own equipment, just run this past your coaching team.
In addition we would request you bring garments such as swim wear, woolly hat and warm socks – even in July! Hot showers are available in the changing areas and accommodation areas so bring a spare towel.
As this is a leader assessment you may also want to bring pens, note pad and suitable wet notes. The centre has wet lecture facilities, including AV equipment, white board, flip charts and pens.
Plastic. The time is right to highlight the devastating effect that plastic is having on our fragile marine environment. In an effort to reduce this burden we are making small steps and ask that our customers refrain from bringing plastic bags or plastic bottles on this course. Pack lunches will be provided and opportunities to fill up water bottles and flasks will be given at the start of the course.×
