The right progression after our Foundation course. This comprehensive course is meant to further develop your sea kayaking and rescue skills in different conditions and to start working on your environmental awareness and navigation planning.
We will introduce you to safe landing and launching in small surf, help you develop kayak handling skills and self confidence in more dynamic conditions along a rocky coastline and enjoy the beautiful Italian coastline. You will also have the opportunity to develop your rescue skills in different scenarios and build your basic navigation skills to plan your own day trip. Depending on conditions and ability of the group we will paddle up to 10 NM a day.
Suited to kayakers with personal skills and knowledge around the Pagaia Azzurra SK3 award or compliant to EPP level 3.
