Robin Oakley at the cauldron near llandysul WalesHe was part of a team who broke the 24 hour distance dragon boat Guinness world record. Yes, a world record holder! Plus he's a member of the GB Grand Dragons, a GB dragon boat team, representing GB at the European Championships in 2012 and 2014, the World Championships in 2013 winning various silver and bronze medals. He has also completed the gruelling 125 mile Devizes to Westminster non-stop canoe race.

He's done a (white water) raft guide course and practised extensively at the Olympic Lee Valley white water course. He also runs rafting parties and does sessions for various special needs groups as well as trips.

For dragon boating and rafting see the teambuilding section. Robin also offers paddle parties for children see here.

The usual cost for a 1 to 1 (or small group) paddling session is £40.
It can be a taster session or working towards a BCU star assessment. An introduction to white water or a sea kayaking adventure. Race training and stroke improvement are all in my remit.

Robin is a founder member of Moonpaddle canoe club, who run various paddle sessions, please see here.
