BC 1 star

Our beginners BC 1* are the perfect first step for anyone who fancies learning to kayak or canoe. The course lasts four weeks and costs £60 (includes membership), which includes the assessment.

This year, we’ll run our 1* courses on Thursday and Friday evenings. Each course spans one open night so you can come down to the club and practice before your assessment, while being assured of plenty of support.

Classes and assessments last from 6:30pm till 8:30pm, but you can come and go any time after 6:30pm on open nights. Don’t worry too much about clothing – if you’ve got a wetsuit, that’s great, but if not, just wear something you’re comfortable in that you don’t mind getting wet – shorts, t-shirt, fleece, trainers. Jeans not suitable. Do bring a towel and a change of clothes, just in case!
