Spring – late March – mid-May
At this time of year I offer coaching days and weekends around the coastlines accessible for a day from Edinburgh, including the Firth of Forth, Queensferry, Aberdour, North Berwick, St Abbs, the Farne Islands. Beginners from mid-April.
Summer – June – September
With the longer days and better weather, I run multi-day guided trips and coaching weeks. I will explore the delights of Scotland’s west, east and north coasts and myriad of islands. I look for places to whet the appetite and fire your imagination. I also coach further afield at events, such as Paddle Orkney, and Women’s Sea kayak Festival in Devon.
Autumn – October
Autumn is a time for consolidation. The coastal waters retain some heat until mid-December but low pressure systems and unpredictable weather is more likely. Dry suits become the norm to make paddling safer and more enjoyable.
November – I take a well earned break, do my taxes and have a rest!!
Winter – Dec-March – I’m heading to Antarctica and then back to enjoy winter mountains in Scotland.
