Coasteering Skills workshops on Jersey.

Interesting escape routes up quality rock, lots of rock climbing on Jersey!

Le Beau Port from the finish of coasteering route.

Got to get wet!

The pinnacle offers a big jump, the crag offers fine hand jamming routes!

This week I have been over on Jersey running sessions looking at skills required and workshoped the activity with the educational and commercial providers of this amazing adventure activity from the Island.
I had been promised the tropics and we got strong northerly winds and 6 degrees of water temp, just like home, but the sun shone and the pink granite made the island feel warm and welcoming.
We coasteered at the beautiful ' le beau port' and explored a variety of other venues. Much chat was had on the skills involved and the way forward for formalised skills training and accreditation for safe practice.
It was so well recieved, I will be going back in May to run two BRAWA courses, it should be more tropical then?

Thanks to all who were so hospitable, I really enjoyed the whole experience, the island is so lovely and with so much potential for adventures, but watch the tides they are huge!
