Hi ,
If the events advertised here are not of interest to you, but you know someone who may be interested, please forward this email. Hopefully there is something in 2019 that means we get to see you on the water.
This is the last call for applicants to join a Foundation Safety & Rescue Training course this 14th & 18th August.
After much discussion, for the first time, the course theory and practical sessions are being split, with a Wednesday evening theory session being followed by a shorter all day practical session on the following Sunday. This is aimed at those with the old 2* award, or the new Explore award, who want to take the next step. An invitation is attached.
British Canoeing has renamed some awards, so the new Discover award is equivalent to the old 1* plus, and the new Explorer award is equivalent to the old 2* plus. These awards are aimed at complete novices, who have enjoyed an introductory session, and want to learn more.
The Discover/Explore award course on the 14th-15th September is fully subscribed, and I am already taking bookings for May 2020.
If you are able to offer help to coach/lead on the September course, please let me know ASAP. A few people have already told me they can help, but would they please confirm this.

County Canoeing Adviser
