The Vigu Sea Kayaking Guide Course Pt. 2/6

It was time for the second part of the Sea Kayaking Guide course offered by the Wilderness and Nature Guide education of Axxell (Vigu) and held by Benjamin Donner from Aavameri

We again met in the harbor of Turku on Friday morning and took the boat to Mariehamn. During the six hour boat trip we had some theory, before arriving at Mariehamn, though for my part this coincided with a lessons learned meeting from a five year project at work, at the same time and place. In Mariehamn I joined the Vigu gang for the practical sessions in the pool of the Maritime Safety Center. During the rest of the weekend we mixed theory, exercises and practical skills. This time we focused on rolling, though we also had other exercises and more rescue training. On Sunday afternoon we took the afternoon boat back to Turku and used the time for theory and reflections on the weekend. A lot of fun and learning again.

I made a short video which sums up the weekend.
