Paddlesport Safety and Rescue Course – Sunday 28th May or Sunday 4th June
This is a new course for 2023 and replaces the old Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT). It is shorter, gone is the use of throwlines and now you only need to paddle your chosen craft. The course aims to provide paddlers with the key safety and rescue skills required to operate safely and to be able to deal with common problems in a sheltered water environment.
The objective is to introduce, explore and practice simple strategies and safe skills that can provide paddlers with the tools to solve common paddling issues.
