Highdown Beginner Courses

Our Highdown beginner courses are well underway, the first two completed, with a total of 16 students each course, and another one just started. They have learnt to paddle K1s, and also enjoyed trying out a K2 with their fellow classmates. One week, they had a try out of the slalom boats. Emily Neville, also a Highdown student, as well as a skilled and experienced slalom paddler, led the session. Thanks Emily.

Lead coach Jim New said what lively, fun and well-behaved groups they all have been – a pleasure to teach With lots of fun had on and in the water, we hope to see you all at the event on the 11th July.

If any student would like to know more about how to get into more paddling or join the club, just email
