Rowing Paddling & Sea Skills Training

SLLP has commissioned a two day training course on water safety, Canadian canoe paddling and coastal rowing for 11-16 year olds at the Clear Skies Adventure Centre at Castle Ward on 28 and 29 July. This has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of our wider Turn O’ The Tide programme to engage people with their heritage.

On each day the young people will be split into two groups with one on the water learning boat handling while the other is on land going through weather prediction, route planning, handling boats on land, wildlife etc., they then swap around in the afternoon or as tides dictate.  Cost for the two days is £10 per young person.

Kit list for each day

  • Complete change of clothes
  • Warm clothing
  • Shower kit and towel
  • Shoes (with laces or velcro) for use on the water that can get wet
  • Lunch, snacks and water – please note that there is no ‘shop’ at Clearsky Adventure Centre
  • Sun Cream and a hat/cap
  • Any personal medication

Parental Consent Form must be completed for each young person attending – this needs to be brought on the day.

Young people can be dropped off from 09:30 and collected again at 16:00 on each day.
