SAE – White Water Kayaking

Ready Steady Go

As part of the Shrewsbury Adventure Experts  (SAE) Programme, I was to run an introduction to white water kayaking day on the River Severn at Ironbridge. The outline programme was:

  • Fundamental skills (forwards, backwards, stopping and turning);
  • River hazards;
  • Breaking in / out of the current (based on SPANGLE); and
  • River trip to run Jackfield Rapids (Grade 2).

The day went extremely with all the group successfully running the rapids and ending the day grinning like Cheshire Cats. If this type of session appeals to you then please take a look at our main site by clicking here.
