Beginners’ Sea Kayak Training Day


9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Event Type

Members’ only course run by Emily Harding of North Devon Explorers.
This course is for people who already paddle and can confidently keep their boat in a straight line and manoeuvre around objects, plus being confident with wet exits and paddle with a spray deck.
This day will be to coach people about transitioning their current paddling skills into a sea kayak. It will involve rescues towards the end of the day. By doing this course, it will mean that you will be able to start getting out on club trips suitable for your ability.
You can hire a club boat for the day if you don’t have access to a sea kayak and this can be transported by yourself or the club.
The location for the course will be confirmed a day or so prior to the training due to tides and weather but it will be on the North coast somewhere.
£15 per person plus £7 for the Kayak hire if hiring the club kayak.
