GLMW is running a paddlesports training weekend at Bury Lake in Rickmansworth run over the weekend of 14th and 15th May 2022. The course will include the British Canoeing Foundation Safety Rescue Training (“FSRT”) award.

Please come prepared to get wet and have loads of fun!

The course is not intended for complete beginners and whilst participants don’t need a formal qualification, they should be confident being on the water in a kayak or canoe, paddling at, or above, the level of the British Canoeing Discover Award.
