No Scottish Sea Kayak Symposium 2011

There will be no 'Scottish Sea Kayak Symposium' on Skye in 2011.

This has been a fabulously well-attended bi-annual event, with demand far outstripping places available. The last was in 2009, so it could have been expected to take place at the end of May 2011.

Gordon and Morag tell me the excellent venue, Sabhal Mor Ostaig, is not available in 2011. Plus there are a few other reasons too.

The Scottish symposium alternated with the Jersey symposium, and I believe Jersey might also take a break to keep in sync with the Scottish event, but that's not confirmed. For now the organisers website announces

"The next symposium is in 2012. No dates confirmed. Venue, to be confirmed."

At the Jersey symposium this year the organisers announced that it would be the last. Explicitly and implicitly it sounded as if it's just too much work for a small team. We also got the impression that they may have been let down by some coach(es).

Thanks for that David.
