Try Kayaking for free (Saturday 28 May)
There’s a great chance to try kayaking for free at this year’s OK Classic Fishing Tournament in Swanage. While the tournament competitors are out on the water, a special demonstration day will be taking place where colourful recreational sit-on-tops will be on display and members of the public will also be able to get afloat and have a go.
No previous experience is necessary, safety equipment will be provided and participants will be fully supervised. There will also be plenty of free advice for anyone interested in getting started in the hugely popular sport of sit-on-top kayaking. The demonstration fleet will be based in Prince Albert Gardens, Swanage and launching will take place close by from the Monkey Beach
Last year the colourful event attracted huge interest. Sit-on-top kayaks are very stable, offer fantastic value for money and the self-draining, open cockpit design makes them very safe.
