Coaching: Level 2 Coach
3 Star Sea
3 Star White Water Kayak
I started mucking about on the water in a homemade plywood canoe on the Thames in Oxfordshire in 1998. When I moved to Devon I still had my homemade canoe, but fairly swiftly moved on to kayaks and eventually sea kayaks.
Although I have done white water, my preference is for sea kayaking. I just love paddling the coast. I usually manage to get out at least once a week and keep going through the winter. Have been a member of Totnes Canoe Club for a couple of years. This year I am helping to coach the Intro to Sea Kayaking course.
My personal qualifications include 3 star Sea and 3 star White Water Kayak. My coaching qualifications are Level 1 and Level 2.
