Building on the success the 1st event on Mull and the 2nd on Lewis, I'm putting the wheels in motion for the 3rd UK Storm Gathering which will be held in Wales over an extended weekend of 25 - 27th October 2008

This year's festival will be based at Anglesey Outdoors, which has been host to the Anglesey Symposium for the last 25 years, making it a logical venue choice. As a consequence workshops and journeys will be able to launch from the surrounding bays and harbours with ease

The aim of this symposium is to bring together like minded paddlers of all abilities with similar passions and provide a practical programme with an emphasis on preparing people for challenging conditions, commitment and open crossings

Water clinics will be based around the following themes: navigation, boat handling, boat repair, leadership and incident management, paddling skills and journey planning. When demand has reach appropriate numbers BCU coach courses and star awards, as well as guided trips, are planned to run from October 28th to the 31st. There will also be a number of evening lectures and various manufacturers on hand to discuss their products
