The Sea Kayak Award endorses your skill, judgment and the decision making required for a successful day on the sea.
You will be confident in planning and undertaking journeys on the sea, in winds up to and including force 3 and/or tides up to 1 Knot, using sea kayaks or sit on tops, in tidal or non-tidal environments, with proficient skills to be in control throughout.
Your award should be seen as a sound basis for building the experience and knowledge associated with Coastal Sea Kayak Award holders.
This is a 2 day course with a chance for some extra training if required and when available. Further details are below.
Roger can also offer you Short, Medium or Long Term Sea Kayak Mentoring, so you get more out of your paddling and time on the water with quality support, coaching and guidance. Follow this link for more information.
"I've just completed a two day 4* Sea kayak training course with Roger. Having been coached by Roger in the past, I choose to do this course with Roger because I knew I would get a great deal from the course. My expectations were certainly well and truly met"
"And I'm probably learning more from his mentoring now, as my paddling horizons expand, than ever before. I can't count how many questions I've asked... and he's answered. Roger has the knack of making that suggestion that radically changes your thinking and moves your paddling on in leaps and bounds."
"There are a number of wonderful things about Roger. He has a very light touch in his coaching, and he's always smiling and encouraging you to relax into the enjoyment of the day"
