Mastering Rescue Techniques for Sea Kayakers.
British waters can be unpredictable & it is crucial for sea kayakers to possess the necessary skills & knowledge to ensure their safety.
Trip Planning for Sea Kayakers - Why?
We’ve all seen them, haven’t we? Board shorts & shirtless, barefoot, inflating their stand-up-paddle board or so called inflatable kayak. And there they go; no equipment, no back-up & no idea!
Can’t get back into your kayak after a capsize? You had better learn to all else it’s overs for you chum!

Dead hard! Sea kayaking can prove very difficult if you have the wrong attitude and even deadly! And a lot of people do have a deadly attitude towards the sea.

Today we're covering the use of map and compass in the context of land-based navigation such as day hikes or multi-day extended trekking trips. These skills are used in sea kayaking to a lesser degree due to handrailing.
