    Hi Kim
    Gary Fletcher passed me your name, after I’d enquired re 4star sea training.
    I see you have only the May date advertised here, but you also mention ‘other dates by arrangement’. Am wondering whether you’ve had any other queries… I’m looking for something in October.

    Sea kayaker interested in improving rolling technique, location Bardon Mill area, Northumberland. At the moment through lack of practice have lost my roll, so need to sort that out as and then progress. Competence level 3* Sea, 4* training (6 years ago). Experience 10 years.
