BCC (Basic Canoe Course)

This course is suitable for cadets with no previous canoeing experience, but they must be able to swim. The course assembles on Saturday afternoon at RAF Halton, where the cadets are issued with equipment and taught basic skills. Then the course moves into the swimming pool to practice the basic paddling strokes and capsize/rescue drills

On Sunday, the course moves to the River Thames, where they can put all the theory into practice.
