After a break of 4 years we have decided to re-launch the Jersey Sea Kayak Symposium. It will be the 11th occasion that the event will have been held in Jersey, the original one way back in 1992. Over the years it has attracted hundreds of sea kayakers to the Island, from around the world, who left impressed by the quality of the paddling in our local waters.
So this is an ideal opportunity either to return to Jersey or to make our acquaintance for the first time. The format of the event is 3 days of workshops, skills sessions, talks and paddles followed by a further 4 days of paddling. This might include tidal race sessions, guided historic paddles looking at Neanderthal man in Jersey or a visit to an offshore reef. Hopefully something to appeal to kayakers of all standards.

Playing in tide races off the north coast of Jersey
What about some coasteering from kayaks with a few jumps thrown in for good measure.
Stunning sunsets, this about 200 metres from the hotel
“Entertaining” jumps for those who want to, into warm water
Miles of granite cliffs waiting to be explored.
Offshore reefs. This is the Ecrehous, approximately half way to France.
These cliffs are just underneath the hotel. What a place for an evening stroll.
St Brelade’s Bay is just over a mile away. The cliffs on the opposite side of the bay contain possibly the finest neanderthal site in Europe.
Alternative paddlesports. Try racing skis or stand up paddleboarding
