WANTED: Level 3 Canoe training

A bit of a last minute thing as the course I was due to go on was unfortunately cancelled. If there is one out there or a L5 bod who would like to run one- as I have a few other people that may be interested, do please let me know! Based in the north would be a bonus but I cant be that picky really!...

I think Leo Hoare, a PYB coach has a DVD coming out soonish that allows u to do sections at a time, it breaks it all down in to lessons and bite size chunks.

Oh and make sure u are bilateral when u coach it, so you dont have to be dependant on one side when rolling!
