Summer Evening Reflections

Summer Evening Reflections
The perfect antidote to stress, these evening courses for adults are designed to suit all levels of proficiency. At Introductory level, we will teach you a whole range of paddling strokes and manoeuvres to get you started on the water. Improver courses are more challenging, as we introduce you seamanship, environmental appreciation and a wider range of paddling strokes.
