The Main Event 3rd - 5th May
With 150 paddlers signed up to attend the 25th Anglesey Sea Kayak Symposium
, no more bookings are being taken. But feel free to turn up to enjoy the buzz, see what it is all about and maybe sign up for next year. The main event includes day-time lectures and classroom based workshops open to all levels and non-paddling partners. They will take place in the main building at Anglesey Outdoors on Porth Dafarch Road. The water based sessions are aimed at intermediate-plus paddlers who have paddled on the sea before but not necessarily in tidal waters. Experienced river paddlers and open boaters would also find the main event beneficial to them. There will be a briefing at 9 a.m. each morning in the marquee to notify participants of the days activities and weather.
The après paddle entertainment i.e., bars and live music also takes place here. The Paddler’s Return, located within the centre grounds will be open all weekend and sells 'pub grub' for those that want it. Sunday night, be sure to drop into the main centre for live music and a boogie! A 'bottle bar' will be available on Sunday only in the Centrre's dining room.Extended Symposium Week 3rd - 9th May
The extended activities are primarily focused around the BCU courses, which take precedent with respect to transport etc. However, there will be half-day and full-day paddles available and you are welcome to join in on elements of the star award training courses provided you are of the right paddling level.
Tidal Races and Overfalls Weekend 10th - 11th May
If you haven't had enough of the races already or you need some more tuition/confidence building, then this is the course for you. Two more days in the wave machines of Penrhyn Mawr and North Stack. The Symposium Tidal Race and Overfall Classes are more of an experience than a training course due to the large numbers of people wishing to partake in them. During the symposium weekend the focus with such large numbers is invariably safety. So to do the coaches justice in their ability to coach you well in the overfalls, an extra 2 days are provided for folk to receive much more individualised training that focuses on taking you from where you are now to where you want to be as a rough water paddler.
