Sea Kayaking Skills Development Course (Six weeks)


6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


West Buckland School, West Buckland, Devon, EX32 0SX

Event Type

This is for those who have paddled a Sea kayak already in slightly wavy/windy conditions and can keep it in a straight line, basic steerage and happy with capsizing and understand basic sea kayaking principles. This training will essentially be focusing on developing a wider range of strokes and refining existing techniques as well as looking at what you need to consider when planning a trip: the kit you need for trips, understanding tides and weather, a knowledge of access issues, being aware of other people’s paddling abilities plus rescues, both peer and self-rescues.

If a week can’t happen due to the weather, then we will provide an alternative Wednesday to make up for the missed session.

Cost £80 for the six weeks.
