The Sea Kayak Award focuses on your paddling and decision making skills for a safe and enjoyable day out on the sea in winds up to force 3 and tides of upto 1 knot. We can use Sea Kayaks or Sit On Tops for this course while looking at effective forward paddling, negotiating confined spaces and maintaining and changing direction. We will also cover several different forms of rescues to ensure the safest trip on the sea.
