Tide race training


As sea kayakers in Switzerland it may seem difficult to get experience in the more difficult conditions on the sea as we are limited to just a few weeks holiday a year in the playgrounds of Anglesey and Cornwall and beyond. What we ignore though are the huge resources that are around, the ambundance of high volume rivers and white water. 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 moving water skills and have lots of fun to complement what we already have on the diverse lakes here.

We have a white water and tide race session every Monday at Worblaufen near Bern to help you get the skills to get the most out of moving water on the river and on the sea.
