International Training Weekend

 The Sea Kayak Symposium ITW coincided with Lunar Eclipse

BCU 5 Star Training with Nigel Dennis

  Our 13th International Sea Kayak Symposium took place in hot sunshine, clear skies, and warm water (its still 14 degrees). The highlight of the sea kayak festival is the International Training Weekend, make use of the spring tides for moving water training.

 Combining rescue scenarios and rough water handling exercises, challenging personal paddling and fundamental skill acquisition... a lot of fun!!
