This will be a gentle introduction to Sea Kayaking with a small amount of instruction and a gentle trip out to Old Harry Rocks. This will be ideal for those who have just been introduced to paddlesport.
The format for the day will be to meet up in the Nat Trust car park for about 09:30. We'll briefly talk through some of the basics, such as launching and landing. On the water we'll paddle gently along the bay trying out some techniques. Old Harry Rocks is a great place to practice a few skills plus enjoying the beauty of the area. The NT cafe rounds off the day nicely before venturing home.
Details will be promulgated on the Wed beforehand.
