Hi Everyone

I hope everyone’s having a good summer break,

As Coach I’m in the process of organising a WWSR (White Water Safety and Rescue) course that will run at some point in mid to late term 1. This trip will teach you all about rescuing and safety on the river so is perfect if you’re interested in the leadership side of things, or if you just fancy throw lining the exec when we swim. This is also a good course to make you feel more comfortable in moving water as you get to practice important skills such as defensive swimming and chase boating.

For more information on WWSR please visit:

https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/courses/white-water-safety-and-rescue-training

This will be a two-day trip during a weekend and is likely to cost around £80. This will depend on things like the transport available.

I want to see how many people are interested in attending, so that we know we have enough people to run the trip. If people could email or message me to say they’re interested that would be great. If you have any questions, feel free to email me too.

My Email:

(Registering your interest does not guarantee you will be on the trip and doesn’t mean you have to go)

Canoe Love

Dan and the Exec

I'd be game for doing AWWSR whenever that's slated for.

Just as a note/explanatory for others reading:


Most of AWWSR is theory to extend and enhance WWSR. Although it includes a bunch of really useful skills it's much cheaper and easier to go through these internally (idea for a warm afternoon sometime?).

In the meantime, the best resources to extend safety knowledge are the Whitewater safety and rescue book, animated knots and asking around people that care about that sort of thing.
