This week is aimed at anyone over 55yrs, who wants to try their hand at sea kayaking.  Time will be spent introducing you to basic boat handling skills and seamanship skills but we will also introduce you to other factors such as trip planning, tidal and weather considerations, wildlife spotting, journeying, cooking and foraging, all with the aim of giving you the basic skills, confidence and kayak coastcraft knowledge to enable you to go off on short passages and safely explore the coastline from a new point of view. A truly unforgettable week.


PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, due to remedial maintenance works, the onsite swimming pool is currently out of use. The instructors will take you to an alternative location using an indoor pool.

The Next Steps: This week will give you a great foundation on which to build and develop your skills. It is recommended that you should complete some calm weather, short coastal passages in company to consolidate what you have learnt. As you build up your confidence, you may want to consider stepping up to the next level by developing your skills further on either Senior Sea Kayak Improver week or weekend.
