Welcome to BCU Lifeguards

The BCU Lifeguards provide lifeguard safety cover for events, such as open water swims, triathlons, sea swims, canoe events/races as well as some units providing front line lifeguard cover on busy UK beaches. The BCU Lifeguards are a specialist committee of the British Canoe Union and are responsible for the management and administration of canoe based lifeguarding. We aim to provide and develop water rescue/safety services and advice on inland and coastal waters
