The North Wales Paddlesport Weekend
Fri 17th Sept – Sun 19th Sept 2021
For this annual training weekend, where there is an opportunity for Scouts and Leaders to be trained and assessed for the BCU / Canoe Wales awards, and the opportunity to undertake the BCU Foundation Safety and Rescue training course.
The weekend is based at Pant Yr Onen Campsite on the banks of Llyn Tegid, directions to the site can be found on their web site here: http://www.balacamping.co.uk
For kayak or canoe training and assessment each paddler must come fully equipped as for the Islwyn weekend and the craft will be inspected. A responsible adult should be available on shore should any paddler for any reason leaves the water.
Foundation Safety and Rescue (FSRT) candidates should also try and bring a tow line, throwbag
and any rescue equipment already possessed, and recognise that they will spend a lot of time in the water and dress accordingly! This course and the 3-star course are subject to CW registration many weeks before and early intention of participation is vital, the courses will be cancelled if numbers are insufficient.
