Whats going on?

 

British Canoeing are on the rampage! not only have they changed their own name (from BCU) but they're changing the names of some of our favourite awards... What was once 4 star is now Moderate Water Leader, and 5 star is now Advanced Water Leader. Hopefully we've managed to include both names here so as to not confuse you all more. Importantly, the course content is still the same

Getafix has always loved to travel and never stops looking to new rivers and new adventures. We're looking at a few places for trips next year but if there's anywhere you'd love to go let us know.

We've been really affected by our friends in the Philippines and what they're going through. Please give money if you can - click here

We're now back in the UK and have hit the ground running with a Level 1 in Lochgoilhead (our new venue), and 5 successful Level 2 Assessments. EXCITING.....7th-11th & 14th-18th October we will be running 2 WW kayak skills development courses, they will be residential and based in Scotland. We're proud to have one of the most experienced and exciting kayakers in the UK to direct these courses. Watch this space.....

The Getafix Team had a great time at the BCU 2012 Coaching Conference last weekend - always good to catch up with old friends and meet new people. Thanks all x

Most of you our regulars have already experienced the varied delights of our bunkhouse at Getafix HQ, and whether or not you were here before the toilet was finished, or while you still had to sleep on the floor in the barn, risk your neck on the Steps with the Big Hole, or scale the cliff of the metal steps to the cabins, you'll now be delighted to hear that phase 1 of the bunkhouse is now finished!
