What is a kayaking symposium and why would you want to go to one?

You may have heard talk about kayaking “symposia”. Basically they’re a chance to get cheap coaching from top coaches, because lots of paddlers come together over a weekend at a popular kayaking spot. ¬†They’re not much like the riotous parties the Greeks would throw. If you really like you can talk a lot about kit and other tech guff but you don’t have to. They do come highly recommended by Edge members and there’s usually provision for a range of abilities.

There’s one for white water (this one’s called a “gathering”) coming up – 9-11 Nov on the River Dart. See here:


If you fancy going along and want to share a lift – let us know.
