5 Day Sea Kayak Leader Training
17th – 21st October 2022
Take the time to build your skills with the 5 day British Canoeing Sea Kayak Leader Training. In Jersey we have a wide variety of locations that allow us to find ideal conditions for training. Featuring sloping sandy beaches on the South and steep cliffs and caves on the North. This gives us options to operate in a wide scope of weather/wind conditions, meaning less chances of missed days on the water.
Getting here and away:
You can bring your own kit via ferry from Poole and Portsmouth, UK or from Saint Malo, France. You can also fly in and use our kayaks and kit from many regional UK airports. Which is a time efficient way to get more paddling in for your days off of work.
