  • Sea Kayak Training with Eila Wilkinson and Ashley Brown!
    April 22-24, 2013
    Hosted by Sea Kayak Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina
    Tuition:  Only $350 for all 3 days.* Only $300 for Meetup members!

    A very special 3-day sea kayak training program featuring Eila Wilkinson...

    The exact program will be determined by the participants needs and desires, and the weather conditions.  Perhaps a kinder, gentler open-water training program with a woman's touch!  (Please note - this is a co-ed program.) With tidal rivers and inlets, Charleston Harbor, and front beach launch sites, the world is your oyster and the possibilities are limitless!

    Eila is a highly decorated and distinguished British Canoe Union (BCU) sea kayaking coach and assessor.  Sea Kayaking UK (Nigel Dennis Kayaks) sponsored paddler with an impressive coaching and personal paddling resume.  Eila has a made a number of impressive, solo and record-setting circumnavigations. These jaunts have included paddling around Ireland, Anglesey and the Isle of Man!

    The course will make the best of the environment and conditions to gradually introduce students into the open-water environment. Again, the exact path of the 3-day course will be primarily determined bu the desires and needs of the students.  Topics may include:

    • Surf launch and landing
    • Open-water rescues
    • Navigation
    • Open-water towing
    • Risk management / Incident management
    • Sea kayak surfing
    • Tidal current skills
    • And much, much more!

    The clinic is open for just about anyone with some minimum experience in open-water.  Prerequisite skills should include comfortable wet exits, some experience launching, landing and bracing in surf.  A roll is helpful but not required.  Sea Kayak Carolina is offering classes and training opportunities in advance of this event if you want to tune-up and be ready for the clinic.

    Eila will be joined by Sea Kayak Carolina staff instructor Ashley Brown.  Ashley is an  American Canoe Association (ACA) Open-water Level 4 Coastal Kayak Instructor.  Ashley is a high-spirited, artistic instructor widely known for her highjinks in a sea kayak in the Atlantic Ocean off Folly Beach Island, South Carolina.

    The program is limited to 6 participants.    Please call Sea Kayak Carolina at[masked] to register or if you have any questions.

    Please call today to ensure your spot!

    Eila's awesome, highly recommended. Spent a couple days with her last Oct. I'd do this but I'm already committed.
