Single Blade is happy to offer programmes at any level from introductory to top-specialist.

Our introductory programmes are generally based around a trip or journey in an inspiring, dynamic environment, and most commonly aim at independence: at opening the door to a world beyond being guided or coached.

Our specialist workshops can cover anything from C-Boating to Adventure Sailing.

We offer leadership, coaching and coach education based on expertise and experience in environments ranging from remote river systems to exposed coasts. Specialities include Advanced Solo Canoeing, Getting Serious About Open Water Canoeing and Canoeing – But Perhaps Not As You Know It.
