If you want to give paddlesports a try for the first time, then this course might be for you. It will allow you to gain confidence on the Caledonian Canal at the Muirtown Basin, where you will have the opportunity to try out sea and river kayaks, as well as open or ‘Canadian’ canoes. Having completed the training sessions, there will be the opportunity to put your newly learned skills into practice, both in winter pool sessions and, on Club trips the river, loch and sea. By the end of the course, most people will have enough experience to paddle with coaches on more open water and begin exploring the Highlands with the aid of their paddle!
Inverness Canoe Club will provide kayaks, canoes, paddles, spray decks, cagoules, buoyancy aids and helmets but not wetsuits or footwear. Further guidance on clothing and kit will be provided in the course joining instructions.
