We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so if you're staying with us, comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal, you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified staff, to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. As this is an assessment, you're expected to be self-sufficient for equipment (access to our extensive range is the norm on our courses for future reference). However, we have an extensive fleet of sea kayaks, so if you're travelling some distance, we can provide you with one.
