Canoeing 1

Imagine cruising down a still river in a canoe.  There’s a quiet ripple as your craft glides through a nature wonderland.

This honour focuses on the skills needed to canoe safely over still water.  You‘ll understand safety issues associated with canoeing, learn the importance of Personal Flotation Devices (PFD’s), terms such as buoyancy and the parts of a typical canoe and paddle.

There’s heaps of practical skills – paddling stokes, embarking in a canoe, what to do in a capsize situation, canoe rescue and more.  A great honour to do, so ‘start paddling’!
