INTERMEDIATE WW NAVIGATION COURSE

PDF

 

After a first introduction to whitewater, many kayakers feel the need for further support and instruction. The intermediate whitewater navigation course sits between the introductory and the advanced navigation courses. The aim of this course is to consolidate the knowledge from the basic navigation course, allowing kayakers to confidently tackle navigation in class III rivers.
