New Expedition Skills DVD Trailer

Monday, 05 December 2011

There is a new instructional DVD coming out shortly called Expedition Skills by Olly Sanders and Nigel Robinson.

It looks really interesting and as far as I can remember, it’s the first time that anybody has put out an instructional DVD focused exclusively on the fine art of planning larger and longer kayak trips.

I think it’s great that somebody is tackling this topic. We have all read about major trips that have failed purely due to poor planning, poor gear decisions or poor trip partners (which probably kills more than people will admit!)

Topics will include:

  • Picking the Team
  • Packing
  • Tents, Food & Hydration
  • Injury Prevention
  • First Aid
  • Wildlife Safety
  • Cooking
  • Sanitation

According to the trailer it looks like Olly and Nigel have rounded up the who’s who of expedition paddlers and got them to contribute their wealth of knowledge. Contributors include: Trys Burke, Howard Jeffs, Ray Goodwin, Doug Cooper, Loel Collins and Nigel Dennis.

It should be available for purchase January, 2012.
