A few months ago, I got an email from Ivka and Boris. They introduced themselves as enthusiastic beginners to sea kayaking, telling me that they want to start up a sea kayak business in Lumbarda, Croatia. They asked us if they could attend to one of our well-known Training Days to learn a thing or two about sea kayaking and safety. While getting to know each other the idea of coming over to Belgium changed to organizing a whole training camp spread over several days. I could feel that these people were on the same page as our NORTHSEAKAYAK team, eager to learn, enthusiast and friendly, so I said yes! I could organize my classes as I pleased for five days. Although I had never met Ivka and Boris before I could immediately feel a connection, my feeling was right when I arrived there! When I said to them that the “magic” would happen when my team arrived they couldn’t believe it at first. We made a schedule for the coming days, way in advance, so we could teach a large number of techniques, sharing as much of our own knowledge as possible. Safety is a priority so rescues, self-rescues and whole doom scenarios would be included. Now we look back to a successful Sea Kayak Training Camp in Lumbarda, Croatia. I would recommend other people to visit the area, make sure to contact Boris and Ivka, their business is called “Spirit of Korkyra” (website https://spiritofkorkyra.com/ ) and aims at the sea kayak enthusiast and hikers who want to explore the beautiful island. I can honestly say that we have made new friends who welcomed us as if they have known us for years! I had the honor to work with a great, friendly and motivated crew who I consider family! I hope to go back there one day! Big thanks for the whole crew who attend this first Sea Kayak Training Camp in Lumbarda, and let’s not forget our lovely photographer Sylvie, for filming a lot! Take care of each other on the water and have fun!
