IOW Sea kayaking Symposium

IOW Sea kayaking Symposium

There seem to be an increasing number of Sea Kayak Symposium and now the IOW is about to play host to the first ever Isle Of Wight Sea Kayak Symposium. Organised by Owen Burson of IOW sea Kayaking it looks set to be a very busy and enjoyable few days proving a huge range of courses, seminars and trips ranging from half day sessions to 2 day courses. The dates for the Symposium are:
REC First Aid Courses ~ 23rd – 26th August 2011
MAIN EVENT ~ 27th – 29th August 2011
BCU Courses ~ 29th – 2nd of Sept

It’s also worth noting that the symposium is a not for profit event, with funds going to Freshwater Independent Lifeboat which is a hugely worthwhile cause.

Owen has pulled together a superb line up of Level 5 and Level 5 aspirant coaches or specialists in their field who have expert knowledge of the subject they are coaching. The list of ‘Guest Coaches’ includes:

Kate Duffus
Howard Jeffs
Phil Hadley
Jeff Allen

Mattias Altin
James Batchelor
Leo Hoare
