A long weekend of enjoyable sea paddling exploring different sections of the coastline.
This weekend 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 we’ll 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 weekend, 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 Saturday morning or Friday night, and stay in a Youth hostel or bunk house, so you are welcome to join us if you like, or to make your own arrangements if you’d prefer.
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!
£249 (this includes use of one of our sea kayaks and equipment)
Discounts for those with their own boats can be considered. Please contact us so we can assure suitability of your boat and if we’re able to offer a discount.
