Nigel Dennis began sea kayaking at the age of 23, and within three years had completed the first circumnavigation of Britain, with fellow kayaker Paul Caffyn. He’s led expeditions all over the world since then, notably around Cape Horn, a circumnavigation of Easter Island, and an expedition to Antarctica. His most recent expedition was to South Georgia Island, 800 miles southeast of the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean.
He participated in the III and IV Symposiums (2009, 2011 and 2013) and afterwards he returned to Llançà to teach BCU 3 and 4.
Dennis also has his own line of boats, Nigel Dennis Kayaks, which are used in heavy expeditions all around the world. And he founded his own school, the Anglesey Sea and Surf Centre, in Holyhead, North Wales.
