Bespoke 1:1 Private Sea Kayaking North wales

4 days private sea kayak coaching for Jim, who was working towards a significant challenge in 2011, the Yukon river decent. My overall aim was to increase his skills in more challenging conditions, work with rough water handling and self rescue! Holyhead Island and Rhoscolyn head on the 1st day with an intro to tidal flow. Bull bay to Point Lynas and on to Ynis Dulas for a break and then back. Working in stronger winds from F4/5 with a following and cross sea, as well as into wind. Day 3 was back to technique and saw us at Puffin Island working with the flow and gentle introduction to eddy turns and stern rudders. The final day was Penrhyn Mawr putting it all into practice plus, managing boat control, awareness of cause and effect and further opportunity for self rescue! Nice one Jim, a super few days and enjoy the photos.
