Understanding Tides & the Tay Monday 28th September 18:00-19:00 £20pp

If you’ve bought your own boat or board recently and are looking for a bit more confidence and understanding of tides and our local waterways, come along to this classroom session to learn the basics of how to choose safe times and locations to paddle.

Topics covered include:
– Tides: what they are, how they affect us and how to check them
– The Tay: understanding its quirks, where is safe to paddle and best times to go
– Weather: best places to check it and what to look for
– Safety equipment: what you should be thinking about when heading out on your own
This lesson will last around an hour in an informal setting which is perfect to ask questions so you can get the most out of your time with us.
Please note, due to Covid restrictions this will be held in our Outdoor Classroom, so please dress warm.
