Scottish Whitewater Week!
Scottish Whitewater Week 6 full days (+ PM arrival and AM departure)
Grade of whitewater: 3 (4)
Spring Whitewater Week - April 18-25th 2020: 3 Spaces Available
Fancy joining us on some of the best whitewater the UK has to offer? Want to learn the skills to allow you to tackle more complex and technical rapids without breaking a sweat? No problem. We've got you covered!
Scottish Whitewater Week is an improver whitewater course that aims to give you the skills to use the river, style your lines and learn the tactical and technical skills for harder, longer rapids.
The Scottish Highlands offer us an incredible variety of Rivers, each with their own unique style and character. The classic runs that will be local to us such as the Roy, Spean, Etive and Orchy, (to name just a few) give us great venues for coaching and we're always on hand to offer cutting-edge feedback to take your paddling to the next level. Each season in Scotland offers different opportunities for us, so we have timed each Whitewater Week to make the most of the benefits of each one.
Who's this trip for?
The grade 3(+) kayaker. You don't have to be all over it, that's what we're here for! But if you have experience on grade 3 with aspirations of running grade 4, a roll that works (most of the time anyway!) and want to get some classics ticked in your logbook, and receive coaching to help take your paddling to the next stage then this is right up your ally! If you're already a grade 4 paddler but feel you badly need input to cement your skills and move forwards, this course will also suit.
Day 1 - Arrival and evening check in.
Welcome! We'll meet you at the accommodation for a cup of tea and a chat. Now is a good time to share what you wish to achieve this week and help us tailor to your goals.
Day 2-7 - River days.
Every day we'll head to one or two classic whitewater rivers in the highlands. You'll receive coaching to help your development along a weeklong progressive course designed to give you the best that Scottish Whitewater has to offer, and to give you vital next steps to your personal kayaking development.
Day 8 - Departure.
After a good night's rest, we bid you a fond farewell and look forward to seeing you again in one of our locations across the world.
