Anglesey Sea Kayak Festival 2013 Programme

Building on the success of the 2012 Essential Sea Kayak Festival, we are delighted to offer a new event in 2013. Following the successful format of last year’s festival, with new coaching sessions and presentations, we are confident that our 2013 offering will be equally popular and well attended.



We invite sea kayakers of all abilities to join us for this 3-day celebration of the very best of North Wales sea kayaking. Based on the world-famous island of Anglesey, the event will offer an exciting range of coaching sessions, workshops, trips, tours and presentations – matched by lively evenings of entertainment…

Sessions afloat will include:

Tide race skills/White water/Surfing/Rock hopping skills for sea kayakers
Boat handling/Leadership/Incident management skills for the 3/4/5 Star paddler

Forward paddling techniques – fine tune your performance
Survival skills in the ‘impact zone’ – Coasteering for sea kayakers

Practical navigation afloat
Expedition planning – top tips & advice
Sea kayak trips – explore the beautiful Anglesey coastline

If you’re new to sea kayaking, there’s no need to feel left out – we’re offering 12 places on a special ‘Intro Sea Kayaking’ weekend to coincide with the event. Come and learn to sea kayak in inspiring company and soak up the evening ambience!

The 3-day event will take place on 19-21 October 2013. Participants are also invited to take part in a further week of BCU training/assessment courses, trip and tours between 22-27 October. Details to follow.

We intend to offer a maximum of 100 places to the 2013 Anglesey Sea Kayak Festival. We will post a detailed programme, venue details, booking forms and a list of guest coaches by the end of march 2013. Watch this space!

The Anglesey Sea Kayak Festival is organised by Kayak Essentials and Oswestry Adventure Education.
