A free one-day workshop next month is aimed at Northland kayakers and paddle-boarders who want to learn more about staying safe on the water this summer.
The morning session will be dedicated to onshore tuition in topics such as safety equipment, kayak types, weather forecasts, tides, trip planning and more.
The afternoon will be spent on the water learning skills and rescue techniques, as well as trying out a range of paddle craft.
The event, at Waitangi on November 7, will be suitable for users of stand-up paddleboards, sit-on-top kayaks and sit-in kayaks.
