Tuilik Team test and training

Today we tested the Biondo Posidonia Emergency Cag, the Exposure Light RAW PRO head torch and the Daniamant Odeo Rescue Flare within the Tuilik Team. A good occasion to train rock hopping, rolls, nigh navigation and lost person protocol, among others. Winter is definitely the best season for kayaking!

Safety & Rescue course

Perfect conditions for this Safety & Rescue course, as quite common in Portovenere, where you can deal with protected waters but also with the SW swell coming from the western Mediterranean. Two days exercising different rescues, rolls, tows, capsized paddler between rocks, leadership and some between the most common incidents. Good job to everybody!

Foundation course

Two days at the Scuola di Mare Santa Teresa facilities for this Foundation course between Lerici and Palmaria Island. We practised personal and safety & rescue skills at the level 2 of the FICK Certificate. Some strong gusts and a heavy squall but also calm sea and nice and warm sun: spring is coming! Congrats […]

Punta Manara headland

Beautiful winter colors along the coast of Sestri Levante. We did some Leadership practising and relaxed rock hopping. Thanks to Corrado, Enzo, Pietro and Felice for the pictures!
