CNTP course providers in SE?

Post by richb250 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 12:10 pm

Quick query - hope someone can help. I'm looking for providers who might be able to run a BC Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning course in Cambridge at some point this winter. Quite understandably, most of the people I know of who do this sort of thing are based close to good sea paddling, and are hence a long drive from our dreary flat lands!

Owen Burson on the Isle of Wight??
Canoeing - bigger boat, broken paddle, more skill!

Thanks for the input, which has mostly confirmed that we live in the wrong part of the UK for sea kayaking (as if we didn't already know...). Between Howard Jeffs, Owen Burson, Paul Hurrell and Phil Hadly, I'm sure we'll find someone who's willing to drive into the fens!

On the same subject, does anyone have any recommendations for CNTP providers that they think are particularly good ?

I have attended CNTP by 3 providers (as have some of my mates) and all would recommend Howard over and above the others. As you know I may be slightly biased but not so others. He is running 2 CN&TP in January and February, if you didn't get this sorted already (though I find a few courses are needed!):

He will put on a bespoke course for a group if you contact him, I think he may be in Cambridge soon for a course (but may be Smash n Bash).

Best wishes
