Kayak Expedition Packing Workshop

I’ll be running the Expedition Packing Workshop for the trips to Greece on the 23rd at Edge Kayak Club with a social at the pub afterwards. Although the focus is on warm weather expeditioning, many of the things I will go over are useful everywhere.

I will show how we pack the kayaks, what to take and what kit you will need for the 6 days trips. 

Everyone is welcome to join the workshop specially if you have been thinking about joining these trips and have questions about them.

The workshop is free but you are welcome to make a £3 donation towards the club.
