The course is organised in two parts.  The first day concentrates on safety and theory followed by two sessions afloat dealing with safe practice and manoevering.   The second day, which might be two half days or two evenings involves running Bellboat sessions with real youngsters under supervision.  The first day will be on a fixed date whereas the second day/half days are organised to suit participants diaries. 


The first day of the next course is on 18 May on the canal at Riddlesden and further information and an application form are below.
