    BCU Kayak Angling Safety Module

    BCU Kayak Angling Safety Course - one course on both days of the event. This will be delivered by Level 5 BCU Coach Kim Bull.

    If your a kayak angler and have not attended one of these workshops yet I cannot emphasise enough at how important it is to come and complete one of these modules, you'll enjoy it, become a more efficient paddler and certainly be safer on the water.

    The objective of this module will not be to teach fishing, however, it will provide guidance to anglers in respect of boat handling, safety, self rescue, equipment storage, and safe mooring and anchoring.

    Do book soon, can I ask if your not fishing the match, maybe your just considering 'kayak fishing', then do book onto Saturday's course, all equipment including clothing and kayak can be loaned to you.

    Contact 1st Wet & Wild if need equipment Hire.

    Price is just £39 per person.

    Certificated VHF Radio Course

    Certificated VHF Radio Course running on Sunday the 6th July. This is an extended 1 day course, classroom based and is being run at the East Barnby Outdoor Centre.

    If your a kayaker, or even a boater who is using or wants to use a VHF radio while afloat do come and get yourself booked onto this workshop.

    Not only is it a legal requirement but it will also teach you how to get the most out of your device and give you confidence in using the air waves, especially if you have to make that call for assistance.

    Price is £135 per person

    There is only limited places so do book on ASAP.

    Sit On Top Fun & Skills - one course on both days of the event.

    Learn to kayak, have fun afloat with Sit-on-top kayaks they are versatile and fun, invite family and friends to book onto this fun little course. Qualified BCU Coach will take you afloat to learn paddling skills with games for a fun enjoyable time.

    Contact for equipment Hire

    Price is just £10 per person

    I wouldn't worry too much, the chances of you finding one on that date are very slim.
