{"ops":[{"insert":"Let us introduce you to the pleasure of Kayak touring. This full day session is exclusive to Coniston Boating Centre. You’ll be paddling with Mike Tracey, the owner of Cumbrian Kayaking and an experienced and qualified paddler in lakes, estuaries and the sea.\nThe day is very much tailored to your needs and experience, your enjoyment and safety are our top priorities. \nThe plan is to meet at Coniston Boating Centre and paddle the length of Coniston down to Peel Island and back. Frequent stops will be made in little bays to introduce best practice and skills, and most importantly where best to apply them. \nWe'll stop on Peel Island for lunch, so bring a packed lunch and snacks for the day. You'll need plenty to drink too, we recommend a large container of water and maybe a hot flask too. The emphasis is to enjoy ourselves, learn through progression, and do this in the most beautiful of surroundings.\nAt the end of the day you will be able to demonstrate or at least know and understand correct forward paddle strokes, how to turn a kayak using three different strokes and where best to apply those strokes, weather and water conditions, route and safety planning, food and nutrition on the water. We will also cover the equipment you need to take a party on the water, towing lines and their application and throw bags. We will deploy throw bags and practice some techniques, with Mike in the water for your to practice rescuing.\nThe more you would like out of this one day paddle the more we can do, but if you’re happy paddling along and simply enjoying the space and feeling comfortable and safe with other like minded people then come along for a relaxing day on the water!\nYou will be provided with a 15ft touring-sea kayak, buoyancy aid, paddle, spray deck, safety helmet and cagoule. You can bring your own wetsuit or wear casual sports clothing you don’t mind getting wet – trainers or deck pumps recommended - please bring a change of warm clothing for afterwards.\nSuitable for 12yrs and upwards"},{"attributes":{"list":"bullet"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"No previous experience required but a reasonable level of fitness and mobility required."},{"attributes":{"list":"bullet"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"No cancellation possible within 48hours of the activity starting"},{"attributes":{"list":"bullet"},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"We will only cancel in the event of extreme weather conditions (please note - raining is not an extreme weather condition)."},{"attributes":{"list":"bullet"},"insert":"\n"}]}
