We will base ourselves near the Pointe du Raz at a camp site where will choose the best location each day to make the most of the conditions. You will have the opportunity to test your skills in the surf and tidal races as well as finding your way along some stunning rock hopping sections. We will catch the ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff with the SKC van and trailer and so you can bring your own kayak on our trailer if you wish. During the week we can indulge in some of the local cuisine and visit some amazing villages. This will be a spectacular week of paddling and one we look forward to all year. The campsite we use offers great mobile homes which we reserve for you as it is great value and saves you having to bring camping gear with you.
To get the most out of the expedition you should be at or around the new BC Sea kayak leader (4*) syllabus or be comfortable in intermediate conditions and be able to roll in conditions. It is an ideal week if you are working towards your BC Advanced sea kayak leader (5*). If you have any questions regarding the required ability please feel free to get in touch.

We will meet you at the ferry terminal on the Friday. You can put your kayak on our trailer at Plymouth and leave your car at the ferry terminal. We will be at the ferry 2 hours before departure.
