Stroke Work

We check that you have and can safely use all of the necessary safety equipment for operating in moderate water conditions, including flares, radios, PLBs, tow ropes, 1st aid kits and basic repairs.



Depending upon how many days booked, we will provide lots of practical practise exercises to perfect the new skills.


Safety & Rescue

We will now stress test your rescues in more challenging conditions and ensure that you can safely self-rescue and roll in moderate water.

You can join us for a weekend training course or longer to build your skills towards the assessment. The assessment is completed in one day, over the course of a coastal sea kayak journey, in a friendly, supportive and relaxed manner.
