The instructors role is to ensure everyone gets a degree of control over their kayak and safe passage along the canal whilst respecting other users / wildlife / canal boat.

A full briefing on land of how to get control of the kayak.

Then its off down the canal for our journey to High Peak Junction and return - a steady paddle at walking pace.

We keep as a group for getting past the canal boat.
