It is amazing that the Scottish Symposium has hardly finished and already our thoughts are turning to events 12 months from now. Unfortunately arranging a sea kayaking event in a popular tourist venue is a bit like arranging a wedding. All the best locations get booked really early. So this is the first official announcement of the 2019 Jersey Symposium.
It will start on the Friday evening, 24th May 2019, and will run will the normal format. This is Saturday, Sunday and Monday workshops and paddles followed by 4 days of the extended paddling programme. Most evenings there is some form of organised activity, which ranges from the Keynote lecture, a sea kayaking quiz, BBQ in a historic fort and live music, just for starters.
We are hoping that, as usual it will attract kayakers from a wide range of European countries and further afield. Ensuring a true international mix of coaches and participants.
Jersey has a significant tidal range ensuring that there is plenty of opportunity for playing in tidal races, but the event is about so much more than rough water. Kayak handing skills, practical workshops, cliff jumping, open crossings are all topics that will be included in the final programme.
