Sea kayaking courses, bespoke - North Wales, Anglesey.

This weekends sea kayaking course was a Bespoke, organised by Gary and for some guys from a kayak club he belongs to. With a mix of previous inland kayaking experience my aim was to provide an xplore, our 3rd level course with a a gentle intro to the fundamentals of sea kayaks and their differences and then to put it all into an exciting context, wit some rough water and a journey out to a small island

Below we see the group paddling through Point Lynas tide race on the last hour of flood.

The wind disappeared, some super light and something was really happening inland!

Owain crossing out into the race.

The day was finished with some balance tasks and a couple of the guys doing some rolls, in the sunshine!

Forecast F5 gusting F6 increasing to F7... the Straits was a super option, working on ferry glides and eddy turns.

Jason leading back, paddling through early stages of wind against tide.

With smiling faces the day finished, back at our start with the current increasing against the wind, enjoying the last of our lunch and reflecting on the weekends adventures. Big thanks to Garry for organising the weekend.
