Kids Kayak Pool Tuition

 We kicked off the first kayak indoor pool course exclusively for kids today, with a guide age of 10-14yrs.
Perfect timing, as playing out would be deemed challenging ...
 Designed to be based almost entirely around learning through games, the young adventurers on this course were keen and quick learners, so the session developed onto core skills for the second part of the hour.
 Learning how to capsize, swim their boat to the side, correctly and safely empty and also get back in in deep water : )
 Plus a whole lot of fun with learning to move their kayaks in different ways, using some team games to add an element of competition to the learning...
I'm looking forward to the next 3 days and seeing how skills come on : )

Boxing Day Sea Kayak Trip

 A few pics from yesterday's sea kayak trip, north of Peel, on a sheltered calm sea : )
 with opportunity for a couple of surf landings if well timed, and plenty of catch up time with Club members
 Really good to see Olly and the lads out on the water, and it looks like we'll be running some more adventures for you shortly!
 All the best

ps. session for sea kayaking this Sunday and the New Year's Day Adventure Club paddle are on the website Calendar!
