6th Autumn Gales Symposium. October 8th - 12th
« on: August 06, 2014, 04:35:44 AM »


Dear friends and sea paddlers,

Before you know it October will be hear and that’s the time for the wind to meet the tide, and that is where the 6th Autumn Gales comes into play, running out of Stonington Borough CT, And Fishers Island Sound.  Many of you loyal paddlers have come to this event in the past and we certainly would love to see you again this year challenging yourself, along side of many paddlers traveling from afar and abroad.  The Autumn Gales event has always promised great camaraderie and sea conditions appropriate to work with and the industries top BCU coaches from the local USA area and the UK.

To see the coaching line up, Rough Water Courses, and BCU Trainings and Assessments please visit our Autumn Gales web site.  Link http://www.autumngales.com/   Sign forms can also be found on this web site.  Some of the big names are Nigel Dennis, Peter Jones, Phil Clegg, Harry Whalen, and Elia Wilkinson.  Plus us locals.

Again this year we will be running the famed Tide Race and Over Falls courses, along with BCU Courses for those of you that are on this performance /guiding paddling track,  BCU 5 Star Sea leader training, BCU 4 Star Sea Leader training and assessments, and BCU Nav courses.

We have a strong commitment of sea paddlers so far, but there is certainly more of you out there.  So if you have thought about it for this year, we would love to hear from you to answer and any questions that you might have.

Remember this event is for “Those who are looking to do more”

Looking forward to hearing from you.
