Orkney Sea Kayaking Association
Kayaking around Orkney - an archipelago of islands off the North coast of Scotland
Trip Organisers are volunteers who give up their time, free of charge, to act as a contact point for paddlers who are interested in paddling.
OSKA trips are NOT guided trips run by qualified instructors.
Organisers will generally issue details of a meeting place and time and a suggested route from their knowledge of the area.
Please be aware that Organisers may refuse to let you come on a trip because they are unsure of your competence/fitness or because the trip is oversubscribed. Participation is always at the discretion of the organiser.
Your participation is on the basis that you are over 18 and responsible for your own safety.
As a competent adult paddler you should make your own decisions as part of the group and accept responsibility for them.
You should be a competent group paddler. You should be able to swim 50m wearing clothing and tread water for 1 minute.
Weather and water conditions will affect what you can cope with at your own skill level and physical condition.
