Lake Sessions

Hi Guys,

Not been much to say recently. Our winter pool sessions have now finished & we are looking forward to the summer season. Edmonton will continue to run our Saturday 10am-12noon session. Our session fee will stay the same, for members £8, non members £12, for up to 2 hours. If you want the Sunday sessions you need to let me know (Email: edcanoe83@gmail.com) Text 07850190537 the day before.

The following sessions are run by HYMB, details are on their website (www.hymb.com).

All bookable on line. No membership fee. Per session fees are £7.50. (Juniors where applicable £5.50.)

  • Saturday Junior Activity Club 9.30-11.30am.
  • Tuesday Off Peak Kayaking/Canoeing from 23rd April 10am-12noon.
  • Tuesdays Off Peak Sailing from 23rd April 1-3pm.
  • Tuesdays Girls Outdoors 6.45-8.45pm, running now.
  • Thursday evenings Adult Club 5.30-9pm from 25th April.

You must hold a qualification for your sport to take part in this club.

Edmonton will run a session on Thursday evenings 7-9pm for non qualified participants in kayak/canoe but you will need to book in with me by text 07850190537 or email edcanoe83@gmail.com the day before.

FSRT 4th May, needed for most instructor awards & well worth doing.

BC SUP Support Module 5th details on website.

Level crossing gates when trains are running on time, usually open on the hour, 1/2 hour & the 1/4’s. I am told they also open at other times. Please bear this in mind when you are aiming for a particular session time.

Herts Canoe Lifeguards meet at HYMB most Mondays (But not the 8th April) 7-9pm.

We are encouraging Edmonton members to take part in their lifeguard training sessions. From 15th April – 20th May (Excepting Bank Holidays) they will be running a SESA course.

“The purpose of the award is to provide the candidate with the necessary skills and knowledge to work as part of a water safety team at any water based event where open water swimming is involved. Whilst this award does not qualify the candidate as a BCU Lifeguard it does provide them with the skills relevant to the open water swimming event environment.” It has now become the required base qualification at most water/swim events.

Costs would be (I’m presuming we are moving forwards with the HCL/Edmonton twinning):

£5 per session for the four weeks – total of £20

Then £9 for BC /£12 for non-BC members’ certification fees. Further details from edcanoe83@gmail.com
