2* Assessments

X Rescue for 2* Assessment

On Saturday 7th November, three brave CUCC members turned up to do their 2* assessment. They were tested on a range of intermediate skills in both Canoe an kayak including moving sideways, looking after a group and preventing a capsize. They also had to show effective and efficient rescues of our live casualty Anthony who jumped in time and time again to act as a victim. Two hours later and we had three happy newly qualified 2* paddlers. Congratulations on passing to Jen Mcgaley, Kai Wohlfahrt and Andrew Witty!

Beginners Courses Michaelmas 2015

On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October we ran two very full beginner's courses. It was great to see so many new paddlers out on the water and taking an interest in the club. After a day of learning skills and a mini-assessment everyone did a spraydeck test, chilly but worth it! And there were almost 30 BC 1* passes awarded. I hope to see many of the paddlers from the beginner's course on our whitewater prep session this weekend, upcoming WW trips, pool, polo and general sessions.

Come and Try it Michaelmas 2015

We had a really successful Come and Try it on Saturday. Over 90 people came down to find out more about the club and have a go at kayaking. For many it was their first time kayaking.
We'll be running a beginners course next weekend and hope to have lots of new members in the club for the year ahead.

Summer Course 2015

We've come to the end of a great summer course. We've been out on the river every Thursday evening. There have been some great warm summer evenings where we've been teaching kayaking to 20 beginners. We started the course with a Come and Try it session where over 30 people tried out kayaking. We then ran a course following th 1* syllabus and 12 new members have achieved their 1* award. There were also lots of current CUCC members in Cambridge over summer who took the opportunity to get out and enjoy messing around in the sun.
