the years I have paddled all sorts of craft in many different environments. Immersed
in paddlesport coaching for over 30 years, working with a huge range of paddlers on
their own personal journeys. I am a BCU Level 5 coach, British Canoeing Technical

I have always been interested in learning and coaching and in recent years gaining
