About The Event

Sport NI are running a series of free Watersports Safety Sessions under a new project called GET WET Stay Safe across Northern Ireland from June – September. These sessions have been developed to ensure that as we approach the summer months when use of the water is at its highest, that water users are well-informed and can safely use the natural environment to enjoy their specific sports.

We are running 2 sessions on this date; you can attend either a specific SUP or Sit-On-Top Kayaking course during any session, you indicate which you are attending by your ticket.

We are running the first session at 10.00, you can attend a course on SUP or Sit-On-Top Kayaking, then at 13.00 we are running the second sessions. Each course is 2 hours in length.
