One of the best ways to get to know what canoeing has to offer is on an activity holiday or specialist course. Under expert guidance you will learn the basic techniques, and the simple safety rules, which will equip you to enjoy a lifetime of water wanderings, or aquatic adventure.
A national calendar of courses and events is maintained by the BCU. This, together with other information is available from the BCU Year Book, free to members or £5.00 to non-members.
The BCU maintains a register of centres approved for the quality of the canoeing and instruction offered. It also holds a register of instructors, activity centres and clubs with an interest and expertise in catering for people who are disabled who wish to canoe. Send a SAE to the BCU office for an up to date list. Contact the Centre of your choice for a catalogue showing the wide range on offer.
