Dear Friends,


“Kayak Facilitators’ Bonding and Sharing of Best Practices!”

It was heartening to note that our kayak facilitators came down to Kallang last weekend and to spend their time not only enjoying doing what they like but, bonding together and sharing their knowledge and best practices among themselves. Yes, it cannot be overemphasised the need to constantly maintain the skill through practices and sharing. The members who came have different skill levels ranging from 1-Star to 3-Star kayaking competency. It was a practice cum training session led by Kian Seng for the facilitators to introduce and refine their rescue and towing techniques.

The commitment and willingness of the Kayak facilitators to share and improve on their skills are very important to give the assurance to our clients that our kayak programmes will be done safely. 

Thank you Kayak Facilitators!
