About this event

This trip provides an opportunity for you to kayak outside on flat water!  We will be leaving at 1.30pm from University and taking you down to the boat house where you can get changed and we will get you set up with the specific equipment you need. We aim to spend as much time on the water as possible; the main focus will be on doing some beginner strokes, gaining water confidence and having fun. We will then get off the water, put all of the equipment away and transport you back to the university for roughly 4.30pm.

For safety reasons you must be able to swim 50m and tread water for 2 minutes in order to be able to take part in this session.
