The Improvers course will cover several topics including efficient forward paddling, tips for keeping going in a straight line as well as techniques for steering and turning. We will also work on self-rescue and peer rescues.  Note: the improvers course is not suitable for those who have never paddled before. You should be able to launch and land safely, and also to paddle confidently. We will be on the water for a few hours (with tea/coffee breaks) so a reasonable level of mobility and fitness is required.

Please be prepared to get wet as we will practise self rescue techniques during the course. A wetsuit is highly recommended. Suitable footwear must be worn whilst on the paddleboard. Buoyance aids must be worn at all times on the water, and are available to borrow from the club. Bring a change of clothes and a towel. There are changing facilities, showers and lockers for valuables. For improvers courses please bring a packed lunch. 

A basic level of physical fitness is required to stand-up paddleboard, if you have any questions please get in touch before booking your place.

Your personal details will only be used by the Sutton Sailing Club for the purposes of the SUP course administration and potential further involvement with the Club and will not be passed on to anyone outside the sailing club. All records will be securely destroyed once your involvement has ended.

Blue Green Algae  
Blue Green algae occurs naturally in freshwater and is known to be present at Powells Pool. The majority of the time this presents no risk to human health, however, occasionally the algae 'blooms' - rising to the surface of the water - which can be toxic, i.e. may cause skin rashes and ill health. Further information can be found in the Environment Agency Leaflet below.

Short Notice of Cancellation
In the unlikely event of poor water quality or unsuitable weather conditions we reserve the right to cancel the course at short notice. In the event of cancelation a full refund or rescheduled date will be offered. Unfavourable weather conditions such as strong winds or thunderstorms.
