A relaxed morning learning the foundation skills of paddling. Use of the paddle and all the basic control techniques will be covered. In the afternoon we’ll develop these skills to put you fully in control of your kayak ready for progressing towards intermediate skills tomorrow.
Some more practice of the day one skills with progression into the paddle skills that help you to be stable. The afternoon is given over to learning how to help each other get back into your kayaks - essential safety skills for anyone kayaking at sea (don't worry - no one will be made to go upside down during this week!)
A planning session in the morning will offer you an insight into how to plan a multi-day expedition safely - weather, tides, charts & navigation, kit needs and general safety tips all feature. From late morning we’ll begin packing and preparing before paddling off into the wilderness...
Exploring the amazing surroundings via kayak.
Return on Friday afternoon feeling refreshed and totally hooked on wilderness kayaking!
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
