Sea kayak sailing has grown in popularity and this practical introductory course will teach you the basics to get the most out of your rig and kayak.
This course is designed for those who are new or relatively new to sea kayaking and to sea kayaking sailing. Sailing your kayak is a new development within the sport and we will use P&H sails and rigs on P&H Scorpio kayaks. We will dedicate an appropriate amount of time discussing the sea kayak sail design and how fundamental body movements will react with your boat.
The course aims to be as practical as possible and we will take part in two journeys over the two days. During these two days journeys we will cover how to deploy your sail, how to set it and how to retract it. Along the way we will talk about the physics involved in setting the sail for optimum efficiency as well as what to do in the event of an incident or capsize.
Our aim is for you to leave the two days with an increased motivation to continue in the sport.Equipment and Kit InformationDaily Schedule
