    Update 21/04 - Unfortunately very little water about and none forecast, so this trip is now cancelled.
    Update 19/04 - Very little water about and no rain forecast for the weekend. There is a chance the forecast changes, so I'll make a decision on Wednesday on whether this trip is still on.  If this trip doesn't run, I will likely run an improvers sea kayak trip on the Leven estuary.
    Open to all improver & intermediate paddlers.  These trips are not a series, you don't need to have attended the past one.  If you have not paddled on one of my trips before, I'll drop you a line for a chat before the date.
    Do you know your draw stroke from your stern rudder? Have you perfected your hanging draw ? We fall into the habit of using the stroke that works, without working out why those other strokes don't.  We'll look at a variety of strokes on flat water. We'll then take them to a short white water run and see how they feel.  If you want to do some reading/watching in advance, check out Eric Jackson (EJ) on YouTube, or his book "Whitewater Paddling: Strokes and concepts"
