As sea kayakers in Switzerland it may seem difficult to get experience in the more difficult conditions on the sea. When we are limited to just a few weeks holiday a year in the playgrounds of Anglesey and beyond, how do you get the necessary experience?
What we do have is a great variety of high volume rivers and white water on our doorstop. A tide race itself is literally a river on the sea formed by tidal movement and actually here in Switzerland we have the perfect training ground to get exactly the right experience, the opportunity to develop our moving water skills and have lots of fun to complement what we already have on the lake.
Our Tide Race Foundation course takes place on lake Brienz and the lower Lütschine or Aare in Interlaken depending on water levels and look at developing fluid boat handing skills, breaking in and out and traversing the flow.
This course is aimed at confident sea kayakers with experience on the lake and in more challenging conditions. Completion of a course similar to our skills development or Fine Tuning course.
