Get ready for AW kayaking activities with a sea kayaking refresher/basic skills course!
This Level 1 course is compulsory for everyone doing kayaking trips with AW.
Cost: $60 (payable at Fergs on the day) - this is a 20% discount for AW members.
This fee is Still payable if you no Show or change your RSVP within 48 hours of this meet up
(minimum 7 attendees or the lesson will not go ahead)Difficulty:
What's included: Two hours of instruction from Fergs Kayaks with your own sea kayak, paddle, buoyancy aid and spray skirt.
Where we meet: Inside Fergs Kayaks.
What to wear: YOU ARE GOING TO GET WET. This course involves learning how to rescue yourself and others in the ocean -- so it involves practice! So, wear togs with merino or polyprop over the top - don't wear long pants, denim and no cotton t-shirts. Cotton is not your friend in a kayak — it does not dry well and dissipates heat quickly. The water temps are much cooler than the air temperatures. Wool or synthetics are the way to go. If you have a wetsuit (farmer jane/farmer john), that would be ideal. Neoprene paddling shoes or dive booties are great too.
Weather: This Meetup will be reliant on the weather and is subject to last-minute cancellation. If this occurs, it will be rescheduled.
No Shows and withdrawl within 48 hours of meet up
The $60 fee is still payable
