The Coach

River Hamble Adventures courses and trips are run by Glenn Jarman, a locally based coach with 20 years experience in canoes, kayaks and paddleboards.

Glenn has paddled on rivers in France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, the US and Nepal as well as the UK and has 15 years coaching experience of rivers big and small. He’s often found on the River Hamble with his partner and their three children exploring the river and local beauty spots.

He is a registered provider of the British Canoeing Foundation Safety and Rescue award and holds qualifications in advanced safety and rescue as well as being qualified to coach on all grades of rivers (see here for a full list of qualifications).

Glenn has a passion for being on the water and his coaching drive comes from helping people find that passion and seeing the joy people get from learning new skills.  His coaching style is supportive, flexible and approachable and based on the belief that people learn best when they’re feeling positive and happy and feel confident in the people leading them.
