    Hi, may I ask what schedule for the days is please? I’m in Huddersfield looking for a level one course. Would I need my own boat? Accommodation? Etc.

    Hi Darren,
    The course is non-residential so you’ll need accommodation. We’re running it in Hexham and there are plenty of local places to stay. It would be great if you had your own boat but not essential as we can lend you one if we know in advance. I can send you a booking form so let me know if you’d like a place and I’ll hold one for you.
    Warmest wishes,

    Hi Kim,

    Please could I book two place’s on your BCU level one courses plus the FSRT course running on the 3rd / 6th of march. this is for the Durham Kayak Club.

    Hi Kim
    is it to late to get a place with the FSRT included prior to the course?
    would the 2 star kayak and canoe be included in the course i am up to standard for the 2 stars but my certificates are out of date.
    If so i would like a place which would be paid for by the sea cadets.

  16. Jo-Ann at #

    Hi Kim, please could you let me know dates that you have any BCU Level 1 courses running? Also I would like my FSRT too if possible? Information regarding course venues would be grateful too.
