Established in 2009, Paddle Orkney is a small biennial symposium based on Mainland Orkney. It is organised voluntarily by local paddlers with a passion for sea kayaking and has attracted folk from all over the UK and from further afield.
The North Isles are a fantastic archipelago and our aim is to create an experience that provides top class coaching in some fantastic and variable waters around our coastline. As well as day workshops there will be the opportunity for trips round and about the island(s), both at the event itself and either side as paddlers hang around to take in the islands coastlines.
There is the option to take part in informal dinners on both the Saturday and Sunday evenings, with live music providing Saturday’s evening entertainment ‘til late.
