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 5 day introductory 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 the boat.
The course aims to be as practical as possible and each day we will take part in a journey. During these journeys we will cover a multitude of topics including how to deploy your sail, how to set it and how to retract it. We aim to coach along the way, giving you the skills for you to control your sea kayak and set you sail to get the most out of it. In addition, 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 five days with an increased motivation to continue in the sport.Equipment and Kit InformationDaily Schedule
