A long weekend of enjoyable sea paddling exploring different sections of the coastline.
This 3 day course can be either training or assessment towards British canoeing’s Sea Kayak Award- if you have the relevant previous experience then you can be assessed throughout the weekend, if not then come and enjoy a weekend packed with training!
The first day will be looking at boat handling and basic trip planning (weather, tides and tidal streams etc). On the second day and third day we will then do a slightly longer paddle possibly venturing a little further off shore. All the routes we use offer great scenery and lots of interesting marine life, and alternatives if the wind is strong.
By the end of the three days, you will have the skills and confidence to get out and have fun on easy coastal journeys. We will also look at various rescue skills relevant to the sea Environment.
This course is non-residential. We usually meet on Friday morning for briefing before going out on the water. We usually do stay in a bunkhouse so if you would like to join us though do let us know!
This course is for you if: You have good flat water kayaking skills, and some experience of either sea kayaking or white water. You’ll need to be confident capsizing (and rolling if you are going for your sea kayak award). Its especially for those who feel “the pull of the sea” – the desire for fresh, sea air and the fun adventure of being guided along rugged coastlines that meet the mighty sea. Or if you are paddling at 3 star standard/sea kayak award and need assessment to prove it!
£299 (this includes use of one of our sea kayaks and equipment)
