"I found your style of delivery to be very easy to get along with, cheerful and friendly with plenty of examples and scenarios to help explain the different elements of the syllabus and you always had an answer to our questions."
Chris Openshaw - WWSR Course

"Thanks for a good and very useful weekend. I had fun, learned new skills, had new challenges whilst still feeling safe, met new people and jumped in a new river. So the best sort of canoeing weekend."
