Just wanted to say thank you for the BCU 5 Star Leader training.  It was brilliant; I personally learnt loads and was really impressed. 

Gary Bullen, Arvor Sea Kayaking

Thanks again, J-P, for the coasteering training, it was pitched perfectly, and the guys had a really fun and productive time. You prioritised and selected the best content at the right location all without knowing us or the venue. Your depth of knowledge and overall coaching style made for a top training day.
