For this Explore Sea Kayaking (Day) course you should have the ability to swim with a buoyancy aid on.
On this Next Step Sea Kayaking Skills course the day will be spent journeying through the islands on Strangford Lough or on one of our local coastal venues depending on the weather.
You will be coached through a range of basic skills such as moving forward efficiently and turning the boat effectively, learning to tailor your paddling/strokes to the environmental conditions, discuss the range of equipment available, what is essential to take and what is desirable, etc. At the end of the session there will be discussions around weather, tide, maps and planning your own journeys.
This Next Step Sea Kayaking Skills course is aimed at those who already have some sea kayaking experience. It is ideal for those who have attended a ‘First Step Sea Kayaking course or have attended our ‘Guided Sea Kayaking Evening‘ series.
Students will be able to avail of all kit and equipment from our extensive stores. Participants will be required to bring footwear suitable for paddling (old trainers), warm long sleeved top, towel/toiletries, swimwear, etc.
The Next Step Sea Kayaking Skills course fee includes kit and equipment, in-course transport, instruction from one of our qualified instructors, packed lunch, tea/coffee and a famous chocolate brownie or flapjack.
You may also wish to bring your own personal snack food for use during the course. You can fill a flask with tea or coffee at the Centre if required.
Your course is a one day course, so accommodation is not provided. However, we do have changing rooms, showers and lockers available for your use.
We can offer you a nights’ accommodation and breakfast either at the beginning or end of a course for an extra £26.50 per person. This is a great way to further enhance your time at Tollymore and savour the beautiful majestic setting that the Centre has to offer.
As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.
We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.
Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
