Rick Patterson
BCU L3 white water kayak coach and BCU L3 Sea kayak coach
I have been a paddler since a young lad in short trousers back in Ireland. I have developed an interest in coaching sea paddling as well as white water and potter about in opens as well. I have a little experience of leading overseas paddle expeditions and in most cases have not been banned from entering the country again and can generally be counted on to give my opinion whether asked for or not!! Maybe that accounts for the wanted posters at Ljubljana airport!?
