NEWS UPDATE – 11 May 2020
In light of recent UK / Welsh Government announcements, we recognise that we will not be able to offer this coaching weekend on the original planned dates.
We have therefore chosen a new event date: 7-9 August 2020
We are grateful to everyone who has already booked this event with us, and we hope that you will be able to join our sea kayaking coaching weekend on this new weekend date. We do recognise that not everyone will be able to paddle with us in early August.
We will provide a 100% refund on all course fees paid, at any time between now and June / August 2020.
If you require a refund at this time, simply email us and we will arrange the payment.
If you have already booked a place for the original June dates, and with to join us in August – just let us know by email and we’ll directly transfer your booking to the new dates. There’s no need to complete a new booking form – or to tell us your coaching session choices – if you’ve done so already.
If you have any questions about your booking, don’t hesitate to contact us.
We hope to welcome many wonderful participants to our event, in August 2020. We will continue to accept new bookings, with the guarantee that 100% refunds will be available at any time between booking and a future event date.
What’s it about?
We are excited to offer our second Essential Sea Kayak Coaching Weekend, exclusively for female sea kayakers.
We’re combining all the fun, adventure and learning of our popular coaching weekends – with some of the UK’s most talented, motivated and experienced female sea kayak coaches.
Jon us to develop your dynamic water skills on Anglesey’s fantastic coastline, in a single-gender learning environment.
As always, we limit group numbers for safety, enjoyment and learning. With no more than six paddlers per group and
six groups per day – we offer the coaching experience of a dedicated course with the atmosphere of a larger event.
If you’re looking for quality coaching in a supportive environment – with great social fun each evening –
this is the weekend for you!
Event attendance can provide 18 months coach / leader update – contact us for more info
Is it for me?
We recommend confidence paddling in open water conditions – if you’re ready to develop moderate water sea kayaking skills (or beyond), we’re delighted to welcome you to the inaugural Essential Women’s Sea Kayak Coaching Weekend.
The fantastic sea kayaking environment of Anglesey, North Wales. 360 degrees of high quality coastline, tide races, rocky coves and islands, surf beaches – it’s all here!
We recommend Anglesey Outdoors – www.angleseyoutdoors.com – who have private rooms, bunk house, camping and an onsite bar & catering. We will be based at Anglesey Outdoors for the weekend and will meet you there each day.
It is impossible for us to say with certainty when the Anglesey Outdoors centre will re-open, or when travel to / from Wales for ‘exercise’ will be permitted. We encourage you to make your own inquiries with the centre, who will likely be happy to accept a provisional booking. We will all aim to be as flexible as possible in these uncertain times.
Check out the 2020 event program for an overview of our planned coaching sessions.
