Will’s first experience of kayaking was with Sea Kayak Plockton on a family kayaking day in Plockton in 2012….capsizing within 20 feet of the slipway in a matter of seconds!
This was the catalyst for a life changing year during which he joined Llangollen Canoe Club, returned to Plockton to gain invaluable experience and being awarded a coveted place as trainee instructor on The Outdoor Tourism Project at the renowned Plas Y Brenin Centre in Snowdonia. Working as a centre assistant enabled Will to gain a broad range of paddlesport and mountain leader skills. Will has sea kayaked in Northern California, around North Wales and Anglesey, St.Kilda and Taransay.
Will is a freelance instructor at The Conway Centre on Anglesey and on The River Dee in Llangollen. He’s a UKCC Level 2 coach, aspirant BCU 5 Star Sea Kayak Leader, and also holds the BCU 4 Star Leader awards for river kayaking and open canoeing. He’s currently honing his skills as a stand-up paddle board instructor.
