Safety and Rescue

All Safety and Rescue training with Ken Hughes Courses is headed up by a BCU Level 5 Coach, BCU National Trainer and a Mountain Instructor (MIA) who has been running BCU WWSR for more than 10 years and who runs the more courses in England than any other provider.

      It is experience that ensures each and every one of our courses is run to the highest standards. Whether you paddle Canoe, OC1, C1 or white water kayak you are assured the course will be expertly delivered in the context of your chosen discipline.
      Experience counts.
