Training Courses & BCU Awards - Sea Kayaking Isle of Man

We've had an exceptional busy training time on the sea, with rough water boat handling and leadership, followed by BCU personal performance and leadership awards.

Congratulations on the Adventure Club members who completed their BCU Coastal Navigation & Tidal Planning course. The next course will begin 10th January, and run for 5 consecutive Sunday Evenings.

Well done those who also passed their BCU 2* and 3* Sea Awards.

A big well done to the Finnish & UK coaches - who have been training with us for the Rough Water handling, and then completed their BCU 4* Sea Leadership Assessment, and then went on to complete their 5* Sea Training.

Nigel Dennis and Trys Burke were on the Island to run the Awards and provide external verification.

We spent a lot of time trying to find landings around the Calf of Man, which were not already taken by the seal population!!

And of course wary of finding baby seal pups camouflaged on the beaches after we landed :)

Some beautiful sunsets, and early morning sunrises....

As well as the anticipated tidal Races and Overfalls provided by our unique Manx coastline!

With the long term forecast looking favourable for paddling (cold and clear) and the enquires we have received, we are providing more experiences and trips this Christmas - for our regular Adventure Club members, as well as families and visitors who fancy a paddle over the holidays :) Link below to our Calendar of scheduled events;
