Exciting times with the nav… time to start reviewing some charts for my own little adventure!!


Mixed in with our busy week, we managed to get some CPD in by night paddling on the sea- in and around Chichester Harbour.
Conditions were great for the aspirant advanced sea leader and all buoyage was found!

First day of a Paddles Up Training Paddlesport Instructor course with sun and brilliant conditions for the group.
Playtime, fun and exploring their role was a brilliant way to start!


Great day yesterday running a British Canoeing Paddlesport Safety and Rescue Training.
Fun day exploring problem solving for all crafts with staff from Christian Youth Enterprises.
Can there ever be too much fun whilst learning🤷‍♂️


Some recent feedback we have received:

“Grahame was very informative and knowledgeable, and delivered the whole thing in a way that kept you engaged”

“Grahame was brilliant. He was very knowledgeable and this is the 3rd course I have had him as a trainer- he is very engaging and a great trainer”

“Really enjoyable course- I’ve written lots down to take away and implement. It’s provoked a lot of thought and I hope it will make me a better leader. The trainer was engaging, friendly and made the course really good”

Playtime today!!!

- First important part was setting boat up, with coffee in the right place!!!

- Second was as getting as close to the wind as I could in slightly windy conditions!

Happy to say that both worked really well🤣🤣🛶🛶⛵️⛵️
