Develop your personal skills on 2 days on the water with BCU level 5 coach Nick Cunliffe from Wales one of the most popular coaches in the UK. During the day you'll develop your personal and technical skills in an environment that stretches your comfort zone in big seas. We'll work with rock hopping and problem solving of the situations we'll face during the day to boost your confidence on the water. To be able to find conditions we use the old fishing boat Donalda of Grebbestad the second day to get us out to the amazing island chain of Weather Islands out in the Skagerrak sea.
