We ran our Advanced Sea Kayak Leader training and assessment courses from the Isle of Seil and had a great time in a wide variety of exciting and challenging conditions day and night. The courses were full to bursting, so thanks are due to everyone who decided to take their course with me as well as to Dave Brown for co-staffing them (and for the blog photo). Many thanks also to Michael at Argyll Kayakers Cove for going to great lengths to make his site Covid-19 safe and for allowing us to use it. The next Advanced Sea Kayak training course will likely be in the spring, though assessments for all British Canoeing leadership awards are changing from January 2021: I’ll post a separate blog in due course to explain that as I start to advertise those courses, though do feel free to contact me in the meantime for details. Our next sea kayak events are a Coastal Navigation course and Sea Leader training from the 16th to 18th October, followed by Sea Kayak Leader assessment on the 31st Oct – 1st Nov weekend. Canoe Leader courses are also coming up soon so please check the website for details.
