Description

This course is for packrafters who are looking to start undertaking safe and enjoyable coastal journeys.  The West coast of Scotland is arguably one of the most stunning stretches of coastline in the world. However, it can also be exposed and unforgiving without the right planning, preparation and skills.

This course is all about arming you with the necessary knowledge of the environment so you can start developing your ability to make safe and appropriate decisions. Enabling you to have a memorable adventure, rather than an epic you’d rather forget!

The course starts off with 2 x 2 hr evening Zoom sessions which will cover:
  •  Key aspects of weather
  •  Tides
  •  Navigation

…and how these support our decision making.

We then meet up for a fantastic coastal journey on the west coast of Scotland (Fort William area) and practically apply all of this knowledge in context, whilst enjoying the stunning scenery, wildlife and views.
We’ll also look at:
  • Personal paddling
  • Safety and rescue and towing skills
  • Personal clothing and equipment
  • VHF Radios and PLB’s

…everything you need to be comfortable in the coastal environment.

The journey will also include an overnight wild camp. Thus maximising your learning on the water whilst enjoying being in such a special part of the world.

Pre-requisites:
This course is for people who have packrafted before on lakes, rivers or inland waterways, and new to the marine environment.  If you’re completely new to packrafting, we recommend attending our Packraft essentials course first.
You should also be practiced at overnight camping and outdoor cooking for yourself.
Cost:
£285 Drysuit included if needed
