A kayaking activity lined up for tomorrow from Boggle Hole near Robin Hood’s Bay south to Ravenscar has been cancelled due to a lack of bookings.

But don’t despair – the next event, run by the National Trust in conjunction with East Barnby Outdoor Education Centre, is scheduled for June 21 from 10am to 3pm, then various dates throughout summer.

Paddling at a relaxed pace, kayakers will be able to spot seabirds at close quarters and seals bobbing between the waves or hauled out on the rocks at Peak Steel.

National Trust Area Ranger on the Yorkshire Coast, Zoe Frank said: “We wanted to run some events which really give people the chance to get to know the coast, see some sights they wouldn’t see on a cliff top walk or a day at the beach.

“Conditions on the North Sea can be unpredictable even in summer, but the event will still go ahead at an alternative venue if the sea is too rough. All equipment is provided.”

No previous kayaking experience is necessary, but participants must be aged 14 or over. The cost is £40 per person (lunch is not provided). To book, call 0844 2491895, booking fee applies. For further dates and availability, visit
