OBWSC has over 40 years experience in providing safe outdoor adventure activities and regards the safety of all participants as its highest priority. 


We invest significant time and resources in risk assessments of our activities and training for all our instructors. All our activities have been carefully assessed for inherent hazards and specific safe operating procedures created for each activity.



 OBWSC holds a licence, and is inspected by, the Adventure Activities Licensing Service.

All our water sports facilities are approved training centres for the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and the British Canoeing (BC).



The OBWSC Instructor team are highly qualified instructors who hold the appropriate National Governing Body qualifications. In addition many of our Instructors are senior coaches and act as technical experts in their own right.

All staff are first aid trained and informed of the latest Safe Guarding policies and procedures.
