A handbook to support Bell Boat Helm
The Bell Boat is a twin-hulled open canoe seating up to 12 paddlers, including the helm. It is a standard class boat. Bell Boating is a rewarding and enjoyable paddlesport activity that can be used in outdoor education, expeditions and competition. The Bell Boat Helm Award is aimed at teachers, coaches, youth leaders and others who wish to use Bell Boats to introduce paddlers to, and develop them for, paddlesport on sheltered water. The Bell Boat Helm Award permits the award holder to take responsibility for the crew and the boat and is relevant for use throughout the year within the guidelines and conditions attached to the award. The main priorities of the helm for themselves and their crew are safety and enjoyment.
