Amy Upper Dart guidin

At the peak of the summer, when many paddlers are heading out the door for adventures overseas, or have come back from spring creeking, its hard to start to think about the coming autumn. Still at Gene17 we like to lay out our plans well ahead of time, so paddlers get to see what we have on offer as soon as we can confirm courses and the alike. Below is a comprehensive list of our autumn and winter courses in Slovenia and Devon. We’ll be adding courses in north Wales in the coming weeks too.

Our line up of coaches, are as ever those coaches known for continually developing their expertise, both on and off the water. Chris Eastabrook, Deb Pinniger, Andrew Bonney and Simon Westgarth, are not only great technicians on white water paddling, between them they have over a century of paddling experience from World Championship Crowns, to first descents and many expeditions to their name, plus three of them will embark on doctorates this year. Our coaching of white water kayaking is central to Gene17Kayaking, the development of expertise know no bounds and our willingness to share these experiences and insights, will ensure that on your coaching course, we’ll bring great learning and development, plus a whole lot of fun.

During this coming autumn, we’ll also offer a Dartmoor guiding service. Whether it is one of our senior coaches or our in-house trained, developed and proven river guides like Amy Elworthy, we’ll offer a great day out on the Upper Dart, Erme or East Lyn. We’ll add in coaching where needed and required to shape a successful descent and offer insight into the great lines to enjoy at all levels.
