Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed taking the SKILS level one day guide course with Chris in Deep Cove last week. He's a superb instructor. I really appreciated his calm, encouraging and really coherent approach to the large amount of information and scenarios we needed to cover. I've taken various other kayaking programs but now I have a way better understanding of the nature of tides, currents, weather etc and how they fit together. I've gained a great deal of knowledge and confidence.
