One Day Training – Fully Certificated

Venue: Broadway’s Meadow, Barrow upon Soar, Loughborough LE12 8XJ

For the second year running Paddle Plus will not be able to hold the 100 mile Canoe Challenge for NABGC due to Covid. Which presents us with a great opportunity to get together a group of aspirant water group leaders from all of the clubs and members of the safety team to have an enjoyable weekend, looking at paddle skills and group leadership on the water.

As a result, we would hope that more clubs will feel able to send teams to take part when the challenge restarts in May 2022. Each club can send up to three adult leaders to take part. They will need to bring their own camping kit. All meals are provided and where needed, we can offer help with travel expenses.


• Arrival will be on Friday evening 28th May

• Local paddle/training followed by curry evening on Saturday 29th May

• Longer paddle and campfire BBQ on Sunday 30th May

• Trip to Matlock Bath for a paddle on the River Derwent Monday 31st May
