If you’d like to spend a week kayaking some classic grade 2/3 sections of West Coast rivers and you’re keen to develop your paddling, then this non-residential course is the one for you. Meet in Fort William, at JJ’s Cafe at 1000 on Monday.
During this 5 day course, we’ll aim to paddle a range of grade 2/3 rivers on the West Coast of Scotland. We’ll make time to look at safe river running strategies, white water safety and rescue as well as developing your personal paddling on intermediate white water.
At least 10 days paddling on grade 2/3 water.
A white water roll would be a bonus but is not essential for this course.
This course is geared for the paddler who is starting to get to grips with white water. If you are comfortable on grade 2 rivers, have some experience of grade 3 and want to experience the rivers of the West Coast of Scotland this is the course for you.
The West Coast of Scotland offers some of the best white water paddling in the UK. On this non-residential course we’ll seek out lots of grade 3. That could include sections of the Roy, Spean, Awe, Orchy, Garry or a skills session on the Kinlochleven playhole.
Whilst paddling as many rivers as possible, we’ll spend some time working on your personal paddling, strategies for safe river running and rescues. We hope that you’ll leave the course feeling confident to safely paddle a similar grade of river with friends.
